Budget for an in country co-ordinator
I'll be setting up a study in Tanzania that will last about two years. We are looking for an expat coordinator with project management skills. How much should I budget for that? [reply] You will need a budget of aprox $40Kto hire an expat, as Dar is very expensive to live in. Students can often commit a year, and can be an amazing resource to launch smaller studies on a tight budget. A local with expertise might be hired through your partner University, but not directly employed or managed by UCSF. If this is all new to you, you might consider the CTSI consultation service in Global Health. The first hour of expertise is free, so assemble your questions.
