Information in Action: Celebrating Research Advocacy Champions
Download publication files
Research4Life and INASP present “Information in Action: Celebrating Research Advocacy Champions” a booklet that showcases the best stories from the 2016 Research4Life/INASP Advocacy Competition.
In 2016, Research4Life and INASP launched a competition to celebrate the critical role of advocacy in research and got a resounding response. More than 150 stories rolled in from researchers, doctors and librarians across the developing world. Many of them shared the hurdles they had overcome to boost leadership support for peer reviewed resources and for evidence-based policies based on that critical information. These include resources to improve access, infrastructure and funding, all of which contribute to improved evidence-based health care, agriculture and environmental policies.
To celebrate their work we collected and curated seven of the most impactful case studies including the stories of the two winners.
