Members of the PRIME consortium

PRIME is a consortium of research institutions and Ministries of Health in five countries in Asia and Africa (Ethiopia, India, Nepal, South Africa & Uganda), with partners in the UK and the World Health Organization (WHO).

PRIME is supported by the UK government’s Department for International Development (DFID), and is a six year programme which was launched in May 2011.

The goal of PRIME is to generate world-class research evidence on the implementation and scaling up of treatment programmes for priority mental disorders in primary and maternal health care contexts in low resource settings.
