PRIME is an eight-year, DFID-funded Research Programme Consortium (RPC), which aims to generate high quality research evidence on the implementation and scaling up of treatment programmes for priority mental disorders in primary healthcare contexts in low resource settings (LMICs). PRIME has developed, implemented, evaluated and scaled up integrated mental healthcare plans (MHCPs)
On 8 March 2019 PRIME hosted a morning event in London to share the research findings and recommendations developed after completing 8 years of research in its five study countries.
Our speakers discussed how the PRIME team developed, implemented, scaled up an evaluated district-level mental healthcare plans in Ethiopia, India, Nepal, South Africa and Uganda.
