This toolkit provides deeper learning on implementation research, helping people learn a standard process that can lead to results that can be compared across regions and countries. It is designed to help identify system bottlenecks and the stakeholders to be involved in the process, formulate appropriate research questions, conduct the research and develop a plan for implementing the study results.
Launched in 2014, it has been revised to incorporate recommendations by researchers, health administrators, communications specialists and others who have utilized the Toolkit.
