Abstract

The lack of capacity in laboratory systems is a barrier in the control of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs).
•Capacity strengthening traditionally focuses on individuals’ skills or institutional quality ignoring wider national/international structures, which are integral to establishing sustainable capacity.
•Published methodologies of how to assess capacity in laboratory systems are scarce.
•As researchers within the Capacity Strengthening Implementation Research (CSIR) unit we use operational research techniques to generate high quality robust evidence to aid the design and evaluation of capacity strengthening initiatives.
