In 2012, SUNRAY an initiative to identify nutrition research priorities in sub-Saharan Africa, identified a number of research gaps: donors, rather than policy-makers and implementers drove research activities; research was not adequately linked to local priorities; and there was a substantial amount of research waste. These findings led to the formation of EVIDENT, a north-south partnership created to […]
SISN’s second newsletter is out and can be read here. In this issue, SISN expands on its Strategic plan and its presence at the Micronutrient Forum in Cancun, Mexico.
SISN’s Strategic Plan sets out our conceptual thinking and the steps which we are taking to achieve our vision in support of global and country efforts to scale-up nutrition. Fundamental to this plan are three priority areas for attention: the first is the ‘Implementation Spectrum’ – SISN’s expanded view of what need to be considered […]
There is a growing interest in implementation science (IS). The scope and complexity of this science means that in order to effectively scale-up nutrition, we need to engage key stakeholders to prioritize research questions, select and tailor methods to the local context, and raise awareness of the importance of evidence-based implementation amongst the nutrition community. […]
Our Symposium on implementation research (IR) at the Micronutrient Forum, co-sponsored with Sight & Life, was a unique opportunity to hear from four highly respected implementation stakeholders (representing government, NGO, donors and academia), about their sectors’ perspectives on IR. What was striking about their reflections was not, as you might expect, the differences, but, the […]
SISN’s first newsletter is out and can be read here. It includes an update on the Society’s recent activities and a round-up of some key events, news and research in implementation science.
In June, the first draft of the Society’s Strategic Plan was circulated to a large number of nutrition stakeholders for review and feedback. We can now announce that, thanks to the inclusion of their expert and extremely valuable input, the full Strategic Plan can be read here. The Strategic Plan forms the bedrock of the […]
Another opportunity for member engagement is at the Micronutrient Forum in Cancun where most of the Board will be in attendance and the Society will present at two sessions. For full details on IR sessions during the Forum, please click here.
July 13th was an important milestone for the Society with the publication of the Lazio Declaration. The declaration is a culmination of the efforts of many of the board and founding members and highlights the critical nature of the current situation and why we need to put IS on the map. To read the full […]
