Welcome to the ARCH Hub: Applying Research to Policy and Practice for Health
If research is to deliver its maximum impact and positively change health outcomes, findings from health research should be translated into recommendations that can be implemented within policy and practice.
This Hub aims to bring together researchers, implementors and policymakers to facilitate knowledge exchange, coordination and collaboration for the uptake and application of research findings into policy and practice. Here you will find free resources and tools, a free open virtual workspace to discuss with other researchers as well as successfull case studies to support effective and faster uptake of your research studies.
