African network expands translation of research into policy and practice
Newly adopted strategy requests Member States to set up knowledge translation platforms to facilitate African governments’ support for initiatives of this sort.
The proposed strategy is intended to provide guidance to Member States for strengthening their national health research systems in order to optimize research production and uptake. It shall also provide for a set of regional support actions to facilitate the overall improvement of research capacity in the Region. The strengthening and expansion of EVIPNet, as a platform that helps bridge the gap between research policy and practice, is a key component of this Strategy.
