The World Health Organization (The Alliance Health Policy and Systems Research-HSS/AHPSR, the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases-IER/TDR, Special Programme of Research, Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction-HRP and the Child and Adolescent Health and Development-FCH/CAH) has announced a Call for Letters of Intent Grants Programme for Implementation Research as part of an Implementation Research Platform lead by the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research and supported by a grant from the Norwegian Government. This initiative has been established to speed up efforts for the achievement of three health-related Millennium Development Goals (MDG 4,5 and 6) which seem to remain unattainable despite the increased support through various national and international levels.

Implementation research here has been referred to a research that “Identifies common implementation problems and their main determinants which hinder effective access to interventions; develops and tests practical solutions to these problems that are either specific to particular health systems and environments, or that addresses a problem common to several countries in a region; and c. Determines the best way of introducing these practical solutions into the health system and facilitates their full scale implementation, evaluation and modification as required.”
