WP1: Relevant research syntheses to address priority policy questions

We are producing evidence-based policy briefs (or “evidence briefs for policy”) that address problems with health systems in seven African countries. Each policy brief summarises evidence describing the problem, options for addressing the problem and strategies for implementing the options.

WP2: Strategies for improving access to research syntheses and policy-relevant research evidence

We have developed and are evaluating a user-friendly format for policy briefs and guides for preparing policy briefs. These are described in the SURE Guides for preparing and using evidence-based policy briefs. We are developing a clearing house for health system evidence.

WP3: Mechanisms to respond rapidly to policymaker needs for research evidence

We have developed and are evaluating services to respond rapidly (in hours or days) to policymakers needs for research evidence in Uganda and Burkina Faso.

WP4: Strategies for facilitating the use of research evidence to inform policy decisions

We have developed strategies for involving stakeholders and other stakeholders in deliberative forums (policy dialogues) and other strategies for informing and engaging stakeholders. These are described in the SURE Guides for preparing and using evidence-based policy briefs.

WP5: Building capacity for evidence-informed health policy

We are building capacity to support evidence-informed health policy in seven African countries. Workshop materials are included in the SURE Guides for preparing and using evidence-based policy briefs.

WP6: Evaluation of African initiatives to improve the use of research to inform health policy decision

We are conducting formative and comparative evaluations of initiatives to support evidence-informed health policymaking in seven African countries.

WP7: Dissemination of project results

In addition to disseminating the products of our work on this website, we are producing video and audio documentaries and organising an international conference on evidence-informed health policymaking
