Current Calls

Case Studies of Implementation Research and Delivery Science

The Alliance is offering a unique opportunity for researchers, decision-makers and other stakeholders engaged in Implementation Research and Delivery Science (IRDS) to highlight their work to the global health community. Case studies of real examples of IRDS projects are currently being solicited for a compendium led by the Collaboration for IRDS (Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research within the World Health Organization, the World Bank, and the United States Agency for International Development).

The compendium will showcase the range of IRDS projects and the potential of this approach for improving health. The compendium may be used for reference by programme managers carrying out implementation research in low- and middle-income countries, teaching by professors or others involved in training and capacity building for research, or to promote IRDS to the greater global health community.

For submission details and selection criteria, please view the document below.

Deadline: 29 February 2016

Please note that there will not be any financial compensation for this work.
