DEGREE provided a conceptual framework for studying and addressing CKDnT, ensuring data collection and analysis occurs using standardized protocols.
La Isla Network has founded a center at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine where data from independent international partners will be stored and analyzed, eventually including a bio bank.
DEGREE served as a platform to direct funds towards research and research-based policy initiatives targeting CKDnT throughout the network. It will provide online and in-person research and analysis support for collaborating institutions.
The data generated and analyzed by DEGREE participants were used for future etiological research into CKDnT as well as occupational and community-focused interventions.
