Challenge: Accelerating the Use of Evidence to Inform Action

  • Disconnect between evidence users and producers (in low-resource settings) which lead to inaccessible and less relevant evidence to inform implementation
  • If information exists, it is often inaccessible or challenging to locate
  • When found it is hard to determine appropriate rigor/credibility
  • Evidence is often not packaged or communicated effectively for decision-maker use

Opportunity:  Create a partner network of knowledge hubs that provide access to critical evidence, individuals and products that accelerate the use of evidence-informed decision-making for better implementation of policies and programs that advance health and development in low resource settings.
