HIFA discussion on Evidence-informed country-level policy-making - starting Monday 22nd February

Dear all,

The HIFA discussion on Evidence-informed country-level policymaking is launching on Monday 22nd February. Please forward this message widely to your contacts and networks to encourage people to join us.

We are grateful to TDR, the Special Programme on Research and Training in Tropical Diseases, the World Health Organization (WHO) and The Lancet for their support of this discussion.

The discussion will explore drivers and barriers to the uptake of evidence into policy and practice, what has worked and what has not worked in different contexts, and how these challenges could be better addressed in the future (e.g. capacity building, access initiatives, raising awareness of key information sources).

The discussion will continue to the end of March 2016, when the content will be summarised and made widely available.

Questions for discussion:

  1. What is evidence-informed policymaking? Why do countries need it?
  2. How is policy currently made in different countries?
  3. What are the key challenges for policymakers?
  4. What mechanisms are in place to support policymaking in your country? Which organisations provide support globally and nationally?
  5. What needs to be done at global and country level to strengthen evidence-informed policymaking?

We are especially keen to share and learn from the practical experience of policymakers, researchers and knowledge brokers, including case studies from different countries.
