Swiss Health NGOs for Implementation Research
09.09.2015 / Basel, Congress Center Basel, Room San Francisco
Side Event of the Network Medicus Mundi Switzerland at the European Congress on Tropical Medicine and International Health
MMS There is a strong call within the international health cooperation to transform evidence based research into policy and action. Implementation research is often driven by the scientific community. In this side event, the organisers want to turn this argument upside down: NGO want to strengthen applied research in their projects and programmes. They argue that embedding implementation research in their programmes will create applied knowledge and evidence for the scaling up successful NGO interventions. -- Side Event of the Network Medicus Mundi Switzerland in cooperation with FAIRMED, SolidarMed and the Swiss Red Cross.
