Abstract

Elaboration of a conceptualized framework for evidence informed national health policy making was considered a crucial component to guide development of this review. The present chapter sets out the core principles of such a framework, incorporating the three aspects of knowledge generation, health policy processes and capacity factors. A visual depiction is developed incrementally to guide the thought processes, this, in turn, is accompanied by explanatory narrative. The ultimate aim of the framework is to help guide the process of drawing pragmatic lessons about what the government, civil society, research institutions, donors and multi-lateral organisations can do to promote capacity development, seeking to be as operational and practical as possible.
