Impact stories

Our impact stories demonstrate how RESYST research is being used to influence health systems policies and practice. Many researchers have longstanding involvement in their country’s decision-making processes, both formally - as part of government organisations or on advisory committees, and informally through strong and long-lasting relationships with policymakers and practitioners. Through these mechanisms and others, we dedicate extensive efforts to share, discuss, debate and collaborate with stakeholders to facilitate research impact.
