Implementation research is conducted within routine systems and real life settings, removed from the controlled settings associated with other types of scientific research. This toolkit was designed to help people learn a standard process that would lead to results that could be compared across regions and countries. It is designed to help identify system bottlenecks and the stakeholders to be involved, formulate appropriate research questions, conduct the research and develop a plan for implementing the study results.

Who can use this toolkit?

Health care service providers
Programme staff
Finance and administration officers

Learn how to:
Identify barriers to implementation and formulate the research question
Make your case for funding
Set up a study design and appropriate methodologies
Plan the project (budget, personnel, timelines, monitoring and evaluation)
Collect, analyse and present research information
Develop a dissemination plan
Monitor and evaluate your research project

Over 200 researchers, academics, disease control programme managers, policy-makers, health administrators, communication scientists and journalists contributed to test and evaluate the toolkit. Major funding was provided by USAID, with additional support from the Implementation Research Platform at the World Health Organization.
