These Stories of Change (SoC) seek to capture and better understand impacts from Phase I of the SHARE consortium, and also include some related work conducted in Phase II. In Phase I, SHARE worked with five main partners: London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (ICDDR,B), International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED)/ Shack/Slum Dwellers International (SDI), and WaterAid. Working closely with national sector partners to define research priorities, SHARE generated rigorous and relevant applied research, and enhanced the uptake of new and existing research. In Phase I, SHARE focused its activities in four countries – India, Bangladesh, Malawi, and Tanzania. SHARE also supported specific research projects in over a dozen other countries including Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Nepal and Ghana.
