SPEED Holds two-day Policy Analysis Training for Partners and other Academics at Makerere University


The SPEED partnership seeks to engage policy makers with contextually adapted evidence for health policy and systems changes to advance UHC and to support policymakers to monitor the implementation of vital programs for the realization of policy goals for UHC. Consequently, the SPEED Project put aside small grants to encourage members within SPEED partner organisations to generate a strong evidence base necessary to guide, support, and accelerate the ongoing efforts related to UHC and health systems resilience in the country. Particular interest under SPEED is research answering policy level questions. To support that process, SPEED has organised the two day training on Policy analysis. The main objective of this training is enhancing the capacity of staff of MakSPH and SPEED partnership to plan and undertake policy analysis research.
