Using Evidence

Analysis, Synthesis, Dissemination

Good data lead to good programs, but they must be analyzed and presented in ways that can be understood and used by relevant decision makers. 

Even the best data will not make a difference unless they are used to support decisions. Translating research into practice requires a multidisciplinary effort backed by formative research with specific target audiences. 

IIP conducts this type of research, and provides technical inputs to advocacy efforts on behalf of women and children.  The Lives Saved Tool (LiST) brings together relevant demographic, program and coverage data to generate estimates of the numbers of women and children that are or can be saved by scaling up proven interventions.  IIP provides technical inputs on strategy development and program planning to major donors and UN agencies, based on innovative syntheses of available evidence.
