Policy briefs

Evidence-based policy briefs (or “evidence briefs for policy) bring together global research evidence (from systematic reviews) and local evidence to inform deliberations (policy dialogues) about health policies and programmes. These policy briefs begin with a description of a policy problem, then summarise the best available evidence to clarify the size and nature of the problem, describe the likely impacts of key options for addressing the problem, and inform considerations about potential barriers to implementing the options and strategies for addressing these barriers.
