Centre of Excellence for Science of Implementation and Scale-up (CoE-SISU), BRAC James P Grant School of Public Health at BRAC University and UNICEF Bangladesh hosted a Global Conference on Implementation Science and Scale-Up at Dhaka from 29th June 2019 to 01st July 2019.
The conference aimed to showcase the role of Implementation Science in promoting a culture of evidence-based health and other social development programmes, policies, and practices. It was an excellent attempt to bridge the gap between research and policy making.
Dr. Pragati Hebbar, PhD scholar and Wellcome Trust/DBT India Alliance Fellow from the Institute of Public Health, Bengaluru participated and presented a poster on ‘Anusthana’ – implementation research for scaling up tobacco control policy interventions.
The GCIS was a very good platform to network with like-minded researchers and engaging policymakers to listen to the success stories through the use of Implementation Sciences to influence programme, policy, and practice.
