A “learning-by-doing” approach, using tools and techniques that are inclusive, participatory, and flexible, can help engagement and learning in different contexts to improve the delivery of health services. This DC Health Systems Board event will bring together researchers and practitioners to share their experiences of engaging and working alongside service providers, beneficiaries, officials, and other local stakeholders through implementation research, and to discuss tools that can support such processes.
This event includes the launch of a new journal supplement entitled Engaging stakeholders in implementation research: lessons from the Future Health Systems Research Program experience. The supplement highlights Future Health Systems’ learning from over a decade of implementation research with people and organisations leading the transformation of health systems in Bangladesh, China, India, Nigeria, and Uganda.
