Evaluation & Capacity Development

Implementation science is at the core of all of the work we do across thematic area networks. Committed to inspiring evidence-based change, the Implementation Science Collaborative (ISC) responds to pressing needs and questions related to global health programs and policies. This begins with Implementation Science Evaluation and capacity building.

How We Use Implementation Science to Affect Change

  1. The first step in achieving more effective policies and programs is to consult with local and regional partners. Teams consider country relevance, required buy-in, and the demand by county, regional, and/or national governments/agencies for evidence-informed decision-making.
  2. After a strategy is in place and partnerships are secured, ISC ensures any available research or data is made more accessible, or “liberated,”  so that influencers and policymakers can see evidence of what is needed and what works.
  3. If a data gap exists or key questions need to be answered, ISC supports research and evaluation to explore acceptability, adaptability, effectiveness, scalability and sustainability of proposed policy and interventions.
  4. All evidence is then curated to create advocacy tools, engage relevant agencies and civic groups, and inform communities.

With a process for liberating, strengthening, and sharing data, we can together ignite real change.
