AFIDEP – JKUAT training of trainers on evidence-informed policy-making curriculum
Event Date: 25 - 29 Oct 2021
Event Location: Naivasha

AFIDEP through the Heightening Institutional Capacity for Government Use of Health Research (HIGH-Res) Project is collaborating with universities/ research institutes in Kenya, Malawi and Uganda to introduce an evidence-informed policy-making (EIPM) curriculum in their existing training programmes.

As one of the institutions identified for this collaboration, AFIDEP seeks to introduce the EIPM training course in the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT). Leading to this, AFIDEP will be hosting a five-day Training of Trainers (ToT) workshop with select researchers and lecturers from JKUAT. The workshop takes place between 25 – 29 October 2021 in Naivasha, Kenya.

The objective of the workshop is to equip the selected lecturers and researchers with the skills needed to conduct the EIPM training course set to be rolled out next year in the university. It is expected that the EIPM short course will be offered at the JKUAT main campus, as well as select campuses, and will target postgraduate students, professionals and technocrats in various fields to strengthen their capacity to use, especially health research evidence in decision-making.

The ToT workshop with JKUAT comes after a successful three-day workshop to review the EIPM curriculum that took place on 6 – 8 October, 2021 in Nairobi, Kenya.
