K2P Mentorship Program

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Knowledge to Policy (K2P) Center has been competitively selected as a lead mentor institute for developing sustainable institutional capacity for evidence-informed decision-making and action in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).

Through this signature program of work, K2P Center is developing the ​​​​capacity of research and policymaking institutions selected from all six WHO Regions. The program will build a cadre of research and policymaking institutions that champion the use of evidence in decision-making and action in each country. 

This initiative constitutes the first arrangement of its kind in LMICs for promoting sustainable capacity-development in evidence-informed decision-making and action. ​
