PAHO's policy was approved during the 49th Directing Council 2009 and WHO's during the 63rd World Health Assembly, 2010 (WHO's).1 On March 2011 an EVIPNet Americas a 5-day capacity building workshop was organized in Santiago, Chile by the Health Policy & Systems Research Unit and the Center for Public Policies, of the Pontificia Universidad Cat�lica de Chile (PUCC).2, 3 This was done: in coordination with the EVIPNet Americas Secretariat, at the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), and the EVIPNet Secretariat at the World Health Organization (WHO);4 with technical support from the SUPPORT Collaboration;5 and with financial support from the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research (AHPSR).6 Eight EVIPNet Americas teams with representatives from 9 countries participated in the workshop. The workshop allowed advancing technical skills and focused on enabling participants briefs and to to advance prepare the development of policy deliberative dialogues that will be completed in 2011. This report assesses the short term outcomes of this workshop and lays out the expected follow up and developments. 1 2 3 4 5 6 http://www.paho.org/researchportal/policy http://unipss.cl/ http://politicaspublicas.uc.cl/ http://www.paho.org/ResearchPortal http://www.support-collaboration.org/ http://www.who.int/alliance-hpsr/en/ 3 EVIPNet Workshop Santiago de Chile 2011 - Policy Briefs & Deliberative Dialogues BACKGROUND The Evidence-Informed Policy Network (EVIPNet) is an innovative initiative that offers a systems approach towards strengthening health systems and health research systems through the systematic integration of research evidence into policies for health, especially at the national level, with the aim of improving health systems, equity and health. As a network, it brings efficiencies including the sharing of resources and exchanges of ideas. The initiative was the brainchild of the Subcommittee for the Use of Research Evidence of the World Health Organization's Advisory Committee on Health Research (ACHR). As a flagship knowledge translation initiative of WHO, EVIPNet establishes partnerships between national level policy-makers, researchers, civil society, and regional knowledge translation experts; it facilitates integrating research evidence and other forms of knowledge for policy development and implementation; it offers a sound approach to PAHO/WHO's technical cooperation; it makes good use of effective knowledge translation tools integrating the best research evidence with other valuable information relevant to local context including local priorities and interests of different stakeholders.7 The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) also serves as the Regional Office for the Americas of WHO (a.k.a. AMRO or PAHO/ WHO). In 2007 PAHO invited those countries that were requesting technical cooperation aimed at promoting a systematic integration of research into policy and health care delivery, to participate in the EVIPNet initiative. The call was headed by Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Colombia, Mexico (both the national government and a Mexico�USA border office), Puerto Rico, and Trinidad and Tobago and teams from these countries (including the local PAHO Research Focal Point) participated in the launch of EVIPNet Americas in July 2007 and expressed local commitment and support from their health authorities. The meeting got participants acquainted with the goals of EVIPNet and helped them in identifying the skills that are needed in functional EVIPNet teams able to prepare work proposals and implement knowledge translation tools.8 Typically these teams were led by senior public health officers and included representatives from leading institutions in health policy development, science & technology, academia, research for health, public health institutes and civil society.8 Since the 2007 launch the Secretariat of EVIPNet Americas has also received expressions of interest in joining the initiative by representatives from Argentina, Ecuador, El Salvador, Honduras and Peru. The EVIPNet Americas teams are supported by a regional network of experts from methodology and thematic fields (e.g. research methods, priority setting, policy development, health systems research, epidemiology, biostatistics, health economy, grant application writing, etc.) such as experts affiliated to the SUPPORT Collaboration. The EVIPNet Americas Secretariat has also facilitated the adaptation, publication and translation of key reference materials making them available in open access platforms in relevant languages (i.e. English, Spanish, Portuguese and French).9 Guidance to advance this process has been provided by the PAHO/WHO Advisory Committee on Health Research.10 7 8 4 Hamid M et al.

This allowed developing a skill building strategy based on the identified needs, so that specific skills related to EVIPNet activities became available in each team and to allow having sufficient trained team members to gain momentum and maintain a sustained development in the long run.11 In this way country teams would reflect on their needs with regards to the skill sets and identify areas that needed further development; the EVIPNET Americas Secretariat would seek means to allow for relevant capacity building activities to take place, working with strategic partners such as the SUPPORT Collaboration,5 the Cochrane Collaboration (especially the Ibero-American and Canadian Cochrane Centres and Networks),12 the Alliance for Health Policy & Systems Research (AHPSR),6 the McMaster Health Forum,13 the Canadian Coalition for Global Health Research,14 and WHO Collaborating Centers,15 seeking efficiencies and promoting regional and sub-regional networks and activities. Following on the advice of PAHO's ACHR,10 and in lines with the elements that were being considered in the development of regional and global policies on research for health,16 the EVIPNet Americas Secretariat promoted a "train the trainers" approach that was implemented with support from the McMaster Health Forum and the SUPPORT Collaboration. This was done in parallel to the work being carried out with participating countries and allowed developing sustainable regional capacities by establishing a cadre of experts, fluent in different and relevant languages needed to support the growth of EVIPNet Americas, and its expansion throughout the Americas. EVIPNet teams were eager to have tangible outputs, and because of this two innovative tools were soon to be implemented with the teams: policy briefs and deliberative dialogues. Policy briefs represent an innovative, tested, and well-evaluated tool adopted by EVIPNet teams around the globe.17 Policy briefs are concise documents that summarize the implications of different policy options for a priority policy issue. Their development involves using evidence and information obtained through adequate research methods to address policy options according to the nature of the various perspectives included under each option; each option addresses questions that a policy maker would find relevant. A policy brief will typically single out the underlying problems, the options to address the problem, key implementation considerations, and elements offering a system based approach suitable for a policy maker. 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 EVIPNet Americas Secretariat.

This was a hands-on workshop that allowed participants to acquire skills and advance the development of a policy brief. The EVIPNet's network approach allowed for building on the experience gained by EVIPNet teams in other Regions, engaging established regional experts and institutions, and fostering effective networking. In the follow-up to the 2009 workshop we witnessed variable progress between country teams. By March 2011 three EVIPNet Americas teams had delivered proposals or briefs (Brazil,18 Costa Rica and Paraguay),a network of facilitators had been established, and a growing number of countries in the Region had requested to the Secretariat either the participation in EVIPNet Americas or technical cooperation to strengthen their national health research system and knowledge translation capacities. Besides, two additional workshops had been held to support the production of specific policy briefs in Paraguay (March 2010) and Trinidad & Tobago (June of 2010). Furthermore, some country teams manifested an interest in using their policy briefs to inform a deliberative process similar to what was being tested in other jurisdictions to involve key stakeholders. Calls were also being made for PAHO to offer an integrated approach that would allow addressing priority topics in an integrated way in which technical areas were engaged in the EVIPNet Americas process. Although the Secretariat was quite stretched out, the financial support provided by participating countries and strategic partners allowed to give continuity to EVIPNet Americas and in 2010 a contribution from the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation and Development (AECID) allowed for the production of key reference materials, supporting some activities and the hiring of a short term professional to enhance the coordination and technical support for EVIPNet Americas. This allowed to support an application to conduct a 2nd workshop geared towards completing policy briefs under development, to organise policy dialogues with selected country teams; and to expand EVIPNet Americas (or related activities) to other countries. WORKSHOP SANTIAGO DE CHILE (2011) Objectives The workshop addressed three objectives: � � To strengthen the skills and capacities of 5 EVIPNet Americas teams to produce (and evaluate) 5 policy briefs To support 2-3 EVIPNet Americas teams to convene and evaluate 2-3 national policy dialogues where the policy briefs can be further discussed and brought into context. � To develop a train-the-trainer strategy to build capacity in the Region for the production and evaluation of policy briefs and the organization of policy dialogues. 6 18 http://www.evipnet.org/php/index.php EVIPNet Workshop Santiago de Chile 2011 - Policy Briefs & Deliberative Dialogues The Secretariat of EVIPNet Americas planned to also use this gathering as an opportunity to interview country teams and the support group, learn from their experience and produce video clips illustrating their views about the EVIPNet tools, processes and achievements. Participants The workshop was carried out in Santiago (Chile) and was led by Tom�s Pantoja (Health Policy & Systems Research Unit, Pontificia Universidad Cat�lica de Chile), a member of the SUPPORT Collaboration. The Health Policy & Systems Research Unit at the Pontificia Universidad Cat�lica de Chile took care of the logistics for the meeting under the management of Dr. Tom�s Pantoja and with administrative support kindly provided by Mr. Patricio Gonz�lez. The EVIPNet Secretariat at PAHO provided support in identifying participants and liaising with PAHO Country offices. The group of expert facilitators for the workshop included teams from the Pontificia Universidad Cat�lica de Chile (Blanca Pe�aloza, Javiera Corbal�n, Mauricio Soto, Gabriel Rada, and Gabriel Bastias), PAHO/WHO EVIPNet Secretariat (Luis Gabriel Cuervo, Evelina Chapman) the Centro Rosarino de Estudios Perinatales -CREP, Argentina (Edgardo Abalos), Florida International University (Juan Manuel Lozano), and the Instituto de Investigaciones Epidemiol�gicas de la Academia Nacional de Medicina, Argentina (Marcelo Garc�a-Di�guez). The workshop was attended by 25 participants from eight teams (see Annex 1): Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico-USA border, Paraguay, Peru, and Trinidad & Tobago. The EVIPNet Secretariat assembled a communications team led by Eleana Villanueva (Research Promotion & Development) with support from Andrea Aguila (PAHO/WHO Country office in Chile) and Harold Ruiz (Knowledge Management & Communications, HQ). The team orchestrated a number of interviews with the participants following the knowledge transfer process. The objective o this effort was to illustrate, in a simple and easy-to-grasp way, the process of how EVIPNet teams implement Knowledge Transfer. The interviews are published in a series of videos, each highlighting an aspect of the process, and can be accessed here.) Methodological approach The general approach to capacity building was "learning by doing"; during the workshop each country team worked in the production of a draft policy brief, and some even advanced the planning of a policy dialogue. Following the workshop, the draft policy briefs will be refined and virtual support and training activities will be carried out by the group of expert facilitators and EVIPNet Secretariat. The finalized briefs will be presented to relevant policymakers by country teams. In preparation of the workshop, a designated facilitator contacted each country team to discuss the objectives of the work, and to advance pre-workshop tasks established for each team, such as the problem definition and selection of an initial set of policy options to address the problem, as well as the information needs that would allow to better define and characterise the problems and options. 7 EVIPNet Workshop Santiago de Chile 2011 - Policy Briefs & Deliberative Dialogues Participants at the workshop addressed three types of questions that allow improvements in health systems using research evidence: � � � what is the problem? what policy and programmatic options are best suited to address the problem how can change be brought about? Each step was followed by a discussion and then the putting into practice of specific skills to integrate research evidence (see Agenda in Annex 2) into the brief. To better achieve the objectives, the workshop was divided in two sections: 1. Completing a policy brief on the topics picked by country teams (days 1 to 3). The issues addressed by the participant teams were: � � � � � � � � Bolivia: To improve population access to health servicesBrazil: reducing maternal mortality Brazil: Reducing maternal mortality Chile: Improving access to medicines Ecuador: Reducing rural maternal mortality rates in Ecuador Mexico-US border: An integrated approach to reduce obesity rates and related health consequences Paraguay: Primary care focused approaches to address non-communicable diseases Peru: Insufficient adherence to tuberculosis treatment Trinidad & Tobago: developing an integrated service approach to children victims of sexual violence and abuse 2. Preparing a policy dialogue where the policy brief would be used to inform key stakeholders, further discussed and enriched within the relevant context (day 4). A series of brief plenary sessions were done on each topic and these were followed by work carried out by country teams. This allowed for participants to grapple with the questions and issues relevant to the topics they were addressing, while being supported by the seasoned expert facilitator(s) appointed to each country team. Throughout the week two experts from the resource team also carried out evidence searches to assist the development of the policy briefs. In preparation for the workshop and to facilitate a collaborative space for discussion �during and after the workshop � a web platform was developed (http://evipnet.ning.com/). This platform allowed sharing and organizing of resources (e.g. SUPPORT and SURE tools), networking, and promoting a sense of ownership and a comradely exchange within and between teams. 8 EVIPNet Workshop Santiago de Chile 2011 - Policy Briefs & Deliberative Dialogues The facilitators also held daily follow up meetings to share experiences, address issues in a consistent manner, and identify options to address challenges towards the completion of the products, as they were identified. The lead facilitator (Tom�s Pantoja) and Secretary (Luis Gabriel Cuervo) clarified issues as required, building on their experience and knowledge of the global network. Participants were also presented with a range of resources developed to aid their work. This included: � � � The EVIPNet Americas portal, where all resources below would be linked (http://www.paho.org/researchportal) A "wiki" tool, to develop their documents in a collaborative fashion.19 the Evidence Portal � a one stop shop where they can find key evidence sources and databases relevant to EVIPNet, and to operational, implementation and health systems research.20 They were also presented the specialized database for health systems research by McMaster Health Forum (Health Systems Evidence database) that will be linked to the EVIPNet websites and efforts will be made to integrate it to the Evidence Portal.21 � � A virtual closed platform for the EVIPNet Americas teams to interact.22 The Global EVIPNet webpage with resources and outputs produced by other EVIPNet branches, and a link to the EVIPNet global portal.23 Evaluation The workshop was evaluated as useful and well organised by the participants. Regarding its objectives most of the participants deemed that they were mostly achieved. A summary of the evaluations is presented in Annex 3. Satellite seminar Taking advantage of the presence of country teams and facilitators the HPSR Unit and the Centre for Public Policies of the PUCC organised a short seminar on Thursday morning entitled "The use of evidence on informing health public policies" Two of the workshop's facilitators (Tom�s Pantoja . and Luis Gabriel Cuervo) presented the challenges and initiatives being currently implemented to link research to policy and two commentators from the Ministries of Health and Finance analysed the way in which those initiatives could be implemented in the context of the Chilean public sector. The event was attended by about 80 people from academic and policymaking organisations and allowed a vivid interchange of views and proposals.24, 25 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 http://global.evipnet.org/ http://evidences.bvsalud.org/ http://www.healthsystemsevidence.org/ http://evipnet.ning.com/ http://www.who.int/rpc/evipnet/en/ http://politicaspublicas.uc.cl/media/proyectos/material/806_Programa.pdf http://unipss.cl/unipss-participa-en-taller-internacional-de-la-red-de-politicas-informadas-por-evidencia-evipnet/ 9 EVIPNet Workshop Santiago de Chile 2011 - Policy Briefs & Deliberative Dialogues FOLLOW UP PAHO has provided a virtual room (http://new.paho.org/EVIPNet) that allows for follow-up video conferences with each country team; it is estimated that each team will require two follow up sessions, and these will be scheduled through the Secretariat. Facilitators of each group will support the development of the specific products (policy brief and/or deliberative dialogue) as agreed with each country team. A virtual conference will be carried out amongst the group of facilitators to discuss the issues raised by each country teams (date to be agreed). Technical support and coordination for this process will be provided in the Secretariat by Evelina Chapman. Ms. Eleana Villanueva followed up on the production and publication of the videos and interviews carried out during the workshop. She arranged, in coordination with the EVIPNet Americas Secretariat, for the inclusion of relevant links into the EVIPNet Americas webpage, and in PAHO's YouTube Channel playlists for Research Promotion and for EVIPNet. 26, 27 Technical support to the teams will be coordinated with the Secretariat, including support provided by PAHO's Latin American & Caribbean Center on Health Sciences Information - BIREME. The Regional website (http://www.paho.org/researchportal/ EVIPNet) will offer links to each web tool and will be linked to www.paho.org/researchportal. Cross links will be established between sites and www.paho.org/researchportal/EVIPNet will be the site where country teams can find links to all relevant websites and tools. Participating teams will advocate for the inclusion and linking of their work plans to the PAHO 2012-2013 biennial plan of work seeking to allocate resources to support and complement the support from the Secretariat for their activities. DELIVERABLES The deliberations during the workshop resulted in participants agreeing on a policy brief template developed around the template used by McMaster Health Forum in Canada (Annex 4A & 4B). This template will be used by most of the teams in writing their policy briefs. There was an initial commitment from 3 teams to organise a policy dialogue around the policy issue addressed by their brief; a progress report and confirmation will be made by these teams by the end of March. Teams will aim to deliver policy briefs in June; those organising dialogues will report their results in September 2011. 26 27 http://www.youtube.com/user/pahopin#grid/user/453DD53E93169678 http://www.youtube.com/user/pahopin#grid/user/52A099D7FAD58031 10 EVIPNet Workshop Santiago de Chile 2011 - Policy Briefs & Deliberative Dialogues Most teams agreed to use the monitoring & evaluation framework proposed by the McMaster team, but they will confirm their engagement in this work by the end of March. It was highlighted that EVIPNet offers a systems approach and that the complex evaluations need to be supplemented with shorter and simpler evaluations to capture the changes in capacities, products and deliverables, and the effects in different components of a health system. Videos and interviews were uploaded to the EVIPNet Americas webpage after the event, and shared with relevant counterparts including the AHPSR and EVIPNet Secretariat.28, 29 We want to express our acknowledgement to the sponsors and funding agencies supporting this event for recognizing the importance of this capacity building, and the contributions and potential of EVIPNet as a catalyst for the development of functional health research systems. And a special mention to the AHPSR that supported financially the workshop. Participating countries are expected to show commitment increasingly supporting their EVIPNet Activities. The Secretariat will continue working with key partners to support and further develop the network and relevant resources, raise awareness and engage global and regional partners. 28 29 http://new.paho.org/hq/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=5103&Itemid=931&lang=es http://www.youtube.com/user/pahopin#grid/user/52A099D7FAD58031 11 EVIPNet Workshop Santiago de Chile 2011 -
