Despite historical neglect, recent years have seen the flourishing of research on interventions and the strengthening of health systems for mental, neurological and substance use disorders in low and middle-income countries. In this talk Dr. Lund will describe the work of the Programme for Improving Mental Health Care (PRIME), the Africa Focus on Intervention Research for Mental Health (AFFIRM) and the Emerging Mental Health Systems in Low and Middle-income Countries (Emerald) research programmes. He will highlight lessons in relation to research partnerships, capacity building, policy engagement and sustainability.
