Communicating health research (8) Role of local evidence in policy and practice (2)

20 August, 2022

Hi Neil,

I have some experience with this in Contraceptive Programming led by youth.

In about six years of research and policy work targeted at improving youth access to contraceptives, stakeholders and youth identified that integrating contraceptive access with usual care was most effective where youth-friendliness was instituted. However, programme after programme attempted to implement a 'Youth-friendly clinic' separated from standard care.

IYAFP in Nigeria continues to provide this evidence to INGOs, but most funders appear to be set on implementing evidence from HICs to LMICs. You can follow our work and literature publications on the PRB website-
