Implementation research (IR) helps design strategies or solutions to overcome bottlenecks that prevent proven and innovative public health interventions to reach the people who need them and ensure that these interventions are used in a manner that results in the outcome for which they were intended. Such solutions include how to overcome barriers to the adoption of drugs, diagnostics or preventive measures that improve health for people at risk of malaria, tuberculosis, NTDs or other infectious diseases. IR can help to ensure that health solutions reach the people who need them and are used in ways that generate intended results.
This free Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) for countries of the WHO South-East Asia Region*, is a step-by-step online training that will introduce you to designing and demonstrating robust IR projects.
