Knowledge to Policy Center K2P
  • Strengthening public health policy and practice and improving health and social outcomes locally and globally.


    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Founded by the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) at the American University of Beirut, the Knowledge to Policy (K2P) Center is one of three centers of research, practice, and policy at FHS representing a 360° system-network approach to shaping public health and social policies in Lebanon and the region.



    The K2P Center bridges the gap between science, policy, and politics; by making research evidence more accessible to a broader range of stakeholders; building institutional capacities for evidence-informed policymaking, and seizing opportunities to advocate and influence policy outcomes. ​
