Objectives: The aim of this study was to provide evidence about the design and implementation of policies for advancing the sustainability of knowledge translation (KT) initiatives and policies in Uganda's health system. Methods: We searched for and reviewed evidence about KT sustainability issues in Uganda, the impacts of options, barriers to implementing these options, and implementation strategies to address such barriers. In instances where the systematic reviews provided limited evidence…

Research translation to inform national health policies: learning from multiple perspectives in Uganda

TLDR
This study shows that effective translation of PMTCT and SMC research results demanded a “360 degree” approach to assembling additional evidence to inform the implementation feasibility for these two HIV prevention interventions.

Health research funding agencies' support and promotion of knowledge translation: an international study.

TLDR
Funding agencies need to think about both their conceptual framework and their operational definition of KT, so that it is clear what is and what is not considered to be KT, and adjust their funding opportunities and activities accordingly.

Funding agencies in low- and middle-income countries: support for knowledge translation.

TLDR
How selected health research funding agencies active in low- and middle-income countries promote the translation of their funded research into policy and practice is described to help evaluate the knowledge translation activities of funding agencies.

A randomized controlled trial evaluating the impact of knowledge translation and exchange strategies

TLDR
The results of this study suggest that under certain conditions tailored, targeted messages are more effective than knowledge brokering and access to an online registry of research evidence.

Translating evidence into practice: the role of health research funders

TLDR
How one funding agency determined its KT role and in the process developed a model that other agencies could use when considering KT programs is described, which proposes five key functional areas of KT for health agencies, and encourages partnerships and discussion to advance the field.

Initiatives supporting evidence informed health system policymaking in Cameroon and Uganda: a comparative historical case study

TLDR
This descriptive historical account of two KTPs housed in government institutions in Africa illustrates how the convergence of local and global factors and agents has enabled in-country efforts to support evidence-informed deliberations on priority health policy issues and lays the ground for further work to assess their influence on the climate for EIHSP and specific health policy processes.

TLDR
The feasibility of a rapid response mechanism designed to meet policymakers' urgent needs for research evidence about health systems in a low income country, Uganda, is established and seems to increase confidence for policymakers involved in the policymaking process.

The effectiveness of knowledge translation strategies used in public health: a systematic review

TLDR
While knowledge brokering did not have a significant effect generally, results suggested that it did have a positive effect on those organizations that at baseline perceived their organization to place little value on evidence-informed decision making.
