The specific objectives of SURE are to:

  • Produce relevant, reliable, accessible and timely research syntheses
  • Develop and evaluate the effectiveness of five strategies for improving access to and use of research evidence in policy development:
    • User-friendly formats for research syntheses
    • Clearing houses for research syntheses and policy relevant research
    • Rapid response mechanisms to meet policymakers’ needs for research evidence within short time frames (hours or days)
    • Deliberative forums involving policymakers and researchers with the involvement of civil society and the general public
    • Supporting civil society’s and the general public’s access to and use of research evidence
  • Develop capacity for evidence-informed health policy development in Africa
  • Evaluate collaborative initiatives between policymakers and researchers when using the above and other strategies to support evidence-informed health policy

This work is organised in seven work packages.
