Implementation Research

Implementation research (IR) is a new approach in the practice of international health cooperation. It is the scientific inquiry into questions concerning the implementation of health related policies, programs, or interventions. Using methods of different disciplines, IR tries to understand and address barriers to effective implementation. Implementation Research demand-driven and research questions are framed based on needs identified together with relevant stakeholders and implementers in the health system.It clearly goes beyond scientists to include policy-makers, the media and community members. In order to strengthen implementation research within the Swiss organizations of international health cooperation, MMS coordinates a thematic platform of its member organizations.
