Health Policy Research Organizations

These organizations facilitate mutual learning among researchers and policymakers and strengthen individual and institutional capacities for research. The ultimate goal of this unique model is to complement the teams’ efforts to integrate the evidence they generate into policies and practices in maternal and child health in the targeted countries.
