Policy Engagement and Advocacy

From policy to impact: The role of policy engagement

Enabling adolescents to achieve positive outcomes depends on our research influencing policy and programming. This is why stakeholder and policy engagement has been an essential part of everything we do and involves all staff and partners from early career researchers to directors and academic leads.

We are continuously consulting with governments, donors, agencies and most importantly adolescents to explore their needs and challenges, and the questions they wanted us to research.

Adolescents want services designed for them. Governments want robust evidence about what works, cost-effective interventions, and programme scale-up. Agencies want smarter interventions which target many outcomes. These needs have been built into our research and guide continued conversations with stakeholders.

We are continuously consulting with governments, donors, agencies, and, most importantly, adolescents themselves to explore their needs and challenges, and the questions they want us to research. See some of our recent highlights below.
