Research uptake (RU) is at the heart of COMDIS-HSD’s activities. Our embedded approach to RU has given us a reputation for achieving evidence-based policy change, as well as achieving changes in practice through adoption, adaption and scale up of our recommendations. We aim to influence national and international strategies where changes to health service delivery can have a positive impact on the lives of marginalised groups.
Proactively engage with ministries of health and other relevant national agencies in our partner countries to ensure ownership and uptake of our research approach, findings and outputs.
Engage with international agencies to increase uptake of our research and to share our embedded approach.
Increase access to our research findings through networks of policy makers, health practitioners and communities of practice.
We also invest in building the capacity of our individuals, partner organisations and other collaborating institutions, by running specialist training workshops led by experts in their field.
