APHRC’s Approach to Policy Engagement

Policy Engagement and Communications

Our policy engagement and communications work is founded on a solid foundation of proven evidence-informed decision making that has helped transform lives in Africa. We have effectively engaged policy actors and scaled up our initiatives to the continental and regional levels. We have effectively engaged with institutions such as ECOWAS, EAC, SADC, NEPAD, and the African Union.   In addition, we maintain strong alliances with critical national and pan-African civil society organizations. We have strong collaborations with grassroots organizations, and local and federal governments, while effectively positioning APHRC as the top African think tank influencing domestic health policy in Africa. 

We continue to deepen our engagement with policy actors in government by formalizing existing relationships as evidence and learning partners and by strengthening our skill set to support continual and sustained attention with relevant government departments. Our approach seeks to deliver significant and sustainable impact through mainstreaming co-design, co-creation, and joint implementation of programs with key stakeholders.
