dc.description.abstract This comprehensive report reviews the first multi-country study of knowledge translation (KT) platforms, a five-year research and capacity-building program focused on supporting evidence-informed health policies and systems in Africa. Eight KT platforms that became fully active in Africa are the focus of the evaluation and constitute the only well-studied of such experiments globally. Evidence-informed health policies and systems can be defined as the use of the best available research evidence in the time available in each of the agenda-setting, policy development and policy implementation phases of the health policy process.
