Strength and innovation of the K2P Mentorship Program: 

  • Adopts a systems approach to capacity development that addresses knowledge, skills, infrastructure, and processes 
  • Identifies and responds to local capacity gaps at both the demand and supply side of evidence
  • Designs a context-specific capacity development 'plan of action' that is appropriate and tailored to the local environment
  • Promotes a durable and sustainable model of capacity development through a combination of techniques and capacity development mechanisms that target both individual-level and institutional-level capacities 
  • Incorporates post-training coaching and mentoring to enhance the application and sustainability of learning and capacity-development initiatives
  • Utilizes a scorecard system to track progress
  • Builds a cadre of policymaking and research/knowledge institutions that champion the use of evidence in decision-making in health, and that will later serve as focal mentors to develop the capacity of other institutions within their respective countries and regions (i.e., ripple effect).​
