Media release: 

NEW DELHI, July 31. The George Institute for Global Health India today released an evidence gap map (EGM) that analysed 557 research studies conducted on leptospirosis in India. The analysis highlighted gaps in research for basic biomedical research, epidemiology (disease distribution and risk factors), diagnostic tests and prevention, management and control efforts to address the problem of Leptospirosis. The development of the evidence-gap map was supported by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) and is expected to inform future strategic decisions in the area of research.
