Guidance from the Director General
 "….not spread our resources too thin…know our
comparative advantage …stick with activities that WHO is
uniquely well-suited to perform"
 "make evidence have the right impact… strengthen the
legitimacy, quality and efficiency of our policy development
processes"
 "...ensure that the best practices that science can devise
are being followed"
 "….integrate WHO's research activities to more
strategically address a common health research agenda"

What we heard from the consultation
 Bridge gap between policy makers
and researchers.
 Champion cause that evidence is
needed to address priority public
health needs
 “Get out of the health box”- links with
economic, social, cultural factors. How
these factors shape health outcomes
and how health impacts on them.
 Translate research questions and
findings into terms (e.g. cost savings)
that policy makers and practitioners
find persuasive
 Focus on application or implementation of existing know-how
 Build, in pragmatic ways, local capacity (individuals and institutions) to develop
and use relevant evidence

What we heard from the consultation
 Conducted according to sound
standards and ethical principles
 Well communicated and used
locally
 Use a shared, broader definition of
research: Application,
Implementation and Evaluation.
 WHO to support and guide
countries; decision making and
accountability is countries'
responsibility.
 Evidence-based policy vital in
WHO’s work and core public health
function

Research for health – Three principles
 Quality - WHO commits itself to high-quality research that is
ethical, expertly reviewed, efficient, effective, accessible to all, and
carefully monitored and evaluated.
 Impact - WHO gives priority to research and innovation that has
the greatest potential to improve global health security, accelerate
health-related development, redress health inequities and help to
attain the Millennium Development Goals.
 Inclusiveness - The Secretariat undertakes to work in
partnership with Member States and stakeholders, to take a
multisectoral approach to research for health, and to support and
promote the participation of communities and civil society in the
research process.

 greater awareness of, and action on, research priorities
at a national level;
 greater awareness of, and action on, research priorities
at a regional and global level;
 improved cooperation and coordination
among research funders and other key partners to
align global resources to meet priority health research
needs;
 more robust agendas for research on specific priority
areas that are facilitated by WHO. Greater coherence
and clarity on how WHO is supporting/actively engaged
in these specific agendas.
