During this workshop, participants will learn from and interact with researchers from the Wellcome Trust-funded international Salud Urbana en America Latina (or SALURBAL, “Urban Health in Latin America) research project, which aims to generate evidence to inform policies and interventions to create healthier, more equitable, and more sustainable cities worldwide by studying the cities of Latin America. The workshop will be participatory and interactive, allowing facilitators and participants to learn from each other. The half-day session aims to build an understanding of how a large interdisciplinary and international team of researchers can work together to ask and answer important urban health research questions to inform healthy urban policies.

Topics covered will include:

- How to build a network and platform for urban health research and policy translation in the global south

- Experimenting with innovative methods for urban health research
