We work to develop relevant resources in the field of IR for a wide range of audiences including decision-makers and researchers. Find out more about our newly launched Implementation Research in Health Guide which aims to boost implementation research capacity, particularly in LMICs.
Through innovative calls for researchers and decision makers we provide a variety of opportunities to conduct programmatic research, acquire methodological skills and strengthen policymaker capacity to demand, analyze and utilize research for decision making. Through our support for training programs for researchers and decision makers in Implementation Research we facilitate capacity building in LMICs. We also organize meetings and consultations with a variety of stakeholders that provide opportunities to contribute to discussions and debates related to the field of Implementation Research. Over the past four years, we have made available, grants worth almost 10 million US dollars for new research and evidence synthesis.
Our work bridges science and practice by using multiple approaches at the national, regional and global levels. These include capacity strengthening, developing tools to bring evidence into policy-making, and advocating for Implementation Research and evidence-informed policy making.
We’re working with partners in over 20 countries around the world to bring research into practice as a means of strengthening health systems and improving health. Our focus on countries with a high maternal and child death rate ensures that efforts to reduce morbidity and mortality and strengthen capacity are targeted to areas where they are needed most.
