Knowledge translation programme

Knowledge Translation (KT) is the synthesis, exchange, and application of knowledge by relevant stakeholders to accelerate the benefits of global and local innovation in strengthening health systems and improving people's health.

AHO’s Knowledge Management, Bioethics and Research Department (KBR) is responsible for developing strategies, policies, methodologies, standards and services to enable knowledge management and translation functions throughout AHO

In that context, decision-making processes at all levels of the health system must be integrated with scientific evidence and health information in order to achieve evidence-based health care and evidence-informed policy making.  AHO has a major role to play in bridging the know—do gap and supporting countries through better knowledge management and translation. AHO envisions a world in which policy-makers, health professionals and other stakeholders use the best available scientific evidence to inform practice, public health and policy-making.
