The Translating Evidence into Action (E2A) Thematic Working Group (TWG) focuses on support of translating health systems evidence into action through knowledge exchange on good practices, lessons learned, and practical guidance and tools.
The aim of this TWG is to close the gap between research and action, by facilitating interactions between researchers, decision makers, media, practitioners and communities, as well as supporting researchers (especially from LMICs) to produce and disseminate their work to translate their research into health policy action.
This thematic group will strategically focus our goals for the next four years on the creation of opportunities to:
- Enhance and showcase capacities of TWG members in evidence translation;
- Increase engagement between the working group and broader HSG membership; and
- Contribute to the global connectivity of key stakeholders in evidence to action (from researchers to practitioners to decision-makers).
We are dedicated to promoting regional diversity within the working group and aiming to designate regional champions or focal individuals based on our needs assessment/mapping exercise. These champions could serve as a sub-committee within the leadership and ensure activities fully reflect diverse regional needs (and leverage regional opportunities as well).
