The Partnership for Increasing the Impact of Vector Control (PIIVeC), hosted by the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LTSM), is a collaboration of research institutes, NGOs, and national control programmes in Burkina Faso, Cameroon, and Malawi, and global policy-making bodies.
PIIVeC aims to:
AFIDEP will be co-leading the work package on policy analysis and evidence uptake.
AFIDEP will design a policy engagement and evidence uptake capacity strengthening programme for PIIVeC researchers, involving a week-long training and a mentorship programme. AFIDEP will also design a capacity strengthening programme for key policy makers on evidence-informed decision-making.
We will also support the design and implementation a policy engagement strategy that will begin with stakeholder mapping and policy analysis at all levels. The strategy is premised on the recognition that evidence uptake should be demand and context driven, involving close engagement with decision-makers before evidence generation and translation and throughout the project period.
Aims and Objectives:
The PIIVeC work package on policy analysis and evidence uptake has the overall objectives to accelerate research uptake using evidence synthesis and policy analysis, and to strengthen linkages between vector control research and policy at the global, regional, national, and project levels.
