EVIPNet is a social and collaborative network that promotes the strengthening of health systems by using knowledge translation as a catalyst for the development of health research systems.
Further to developing research capacities, EVIPNet promotes a systems approach for the implementation of relevant research and the integration between policy, practice, and research. It also promotes partnerships between stakeholders, facilitates policy implementation and policy development that is informed by reliable and relevant scientific evidence.
EVIPNet builds bridges between research producers and users. The international network and its secretariats (regional and global) monitor and evaluate, and bring efficiencies and coordination among participating country teams, within the Americas, and globally between participating WHO Regions.
