Implementation council 

The Evidence Commission Implementation Council will serve as a vehicle for promoting, contributing to and/or leading efforts to implement the Evidence Commission’s 24 recommendations. As the COVID-19 Evidence Network to support Decision-making (COVID-END) winds down, partners from this time-limited network, as well as other partners, will serve on the council to help advance the Evidence Commission secretariat's three implementation priorities:

  • formalizing and strengthening domestic evidence support systems (recommendations 5-8, 12, 14, 16)
  • enhancing and leveraging the global evidence architecture (recommendations 9-11, 17-24)
  • putting evidence at the centre of everyday life (recommendations 13, 15).

Partners may also be interested in other priorities from the report, or in taking a specific country (or regional) or sectoral focus.

Among the benefits of joining the council includes:  

  • recognition of your organization as a partner in the drive to improve the use of evidence to address societal challenges while the ‘window of opportunity’ is open
  • periodic email updates so you can keep up to speed on progress and opportunities
  • virtual calls every two to three months so you can provide feedback on progress, discuss current and future opportunities, and share your experiences with pushing for change
  • support for your efforts to promote, contribute to and/or lead efforts to implement the Evidence Commission’s 24 recommendations.
