Implementation science (IS) capacity has the potential to catalyze improvements in global health policies and programming. Globally, an array of IS training and curriculum resources have been developed. Join a range of experts from public health training institutions, implementation, and policy-oriented organizations along with those who support IS partnerships across the globe, to explore IS capacity development opportunities, their utility, and availability across contexts and for different audiences. Through three dynamic panels and facilitated discussion, the session will highlight perspectives on IS capacity strengthening approaches. The aim is to identify what works, major challenges and how to improve IS training aims and modalities to better meet real-world needs. The session will contextualize the value of IS capacity underscored by the recent pandemic experience and emerging mental health and development issues.
