Knowledge Translation Office - IKT

With support from THRiVE, the Innovations and Knowledge Translation (IKT) office at Makerere University organizes strategic fora where knowledge generators (research scientists) share and discuss their innovations and research findings with knowledge users (policy makers, practitioners and the public). These platforms, discussions and strategic engagements are aimed at accelerating the adoption of proven innovations and research outputs into new and existing health policies in order to maximise research outputs, reduce research waste, increase the use of interventions of proven effectiveness and optimise the use of available resources in improving livelihoods.

The IKT office also supports researchers to synthesize and communicate their findings in a consumer friendly way but also engages the policy makers, practitioners and the public to understand science and use research evidence in day-to-day decision making.
