Evidence synthesis | (CHPSD) - The CHPSD is a multi-disciplinary collaborative effort to support evidence based policy making and health systems strengthening, by establishing a platform for health systems research and evidence, and facilitating coordinated stakeholder engagements.

Evidence synthesis

The evidence synthesis strategy

KERU seeks to create a mechanism of synthesizing and packaging the evidence in timely, customized, and user-friendly versions. The challenges in evidence synthesis that have been identified include:

  • 1. Unavailability of timely evidence
  • 2. Limited capacity for researchers to synthesize, package and
    communicate evidence in a user-friendly format.

KERU Evidence Synthesis Initiatives

  • Conduct Training workshops for researchers on knowledge
    synthesis, packaging, communication and Translation
  • Develop Policy and Evidence Briefs by synthesizing existing research evidence on current topical policy issues.
  • Conduct seminars within academic and research community on approaches to better synthesize engage policy makers on evidence.
  • Write and publish OpEd and other opinion pieces in print
    media on topical issues to contribute to and influence discussions.
