Policy Advisory Boards

From the onset, our African research partners in Burkina Faso, Kenya, Malawi and Mozambique strongly involve the health authorities and policymakers in the research process. Stakeholders such as the ministry of health, national and international NGOs,  faith-based organisations, civil society organisations and health providers are represented in local Policy Advisory Boards (PAB) which meet regularly to discuss and disseminate the research outcomes. Member lists of the four boards can be otained upon request.
