Oct 30, 2018 12:00 - Oct 30, 2018 13:00 | Presented by:

Watch the recording from our October 2018 ‘Top Ten‘ webinar: Top Ten insights on supporting evidence-informed policymaking in Nigeria, with a focus on evidence ecosystem maps.

There is a growing commitment to evidence-based action on the part of researchers and policymakers in many parts of Africa. Discovering the best strategies to integrate research findings into policymaking and policy-implementation processes is critical to fostering this approach. One solution that has gained traction for engaging diverse groups in the use of these strategies is that of evidence ecosystem maps. Jesse Uneke (director of the African Institute for Health Policy and Health Systems Studies) shared insights into this approach and from his experience in supporting evidence-informed policymaking in Nigeria. John Lavis and Kaelan Moat (McMaster Health Forum)  provided insights from the Forum’s experience in working with other groups around the world to support evidence-informed policymaking.

Webinars in this series feature top ten insights into health- and social-systems, evidence-informed policymaking and a range of key health and social issues, from Forum experts and influential policymakers, stakeholders and researchers from around the world.
