Relevant evidence pieces can inform and empower decision-makers and health actors to improve health outcomes, strengthen health system performance, and catalyze actions to achieve the common goal. However, the challenges in the gaps between evidence, policy, and practice can really put everyone on the backfoot. In the evidence ecosystem, strategic collaboration among evidence producers and users is only rarely systematic or
institutionalized. Therefore, mobilizing evidence for action remains vital to address pressing health challenges and make a real difference for patients and communities.
This is a technical document on closing evidence-to-policy gaps and improving health outcomes. The document outlines the evidence-informed decision-making at all stages and processes and lists tools to translate evidence into action. The document also underlines the importance of country leadership overall along with areas of innovation in evidence-informed policymaking.
