Abstract:
This PhD submission presents a case study of an academic group working as infomediaries at the interface between research and global policy, and at the interface between global policy and national decisions: advising on methodological issues, conducting systematic evidence reviews in response to information needs, and developing approaches for reinterpreting global guidance for national decision-making. The included systematic reviews were among the first to adopt innovative elements such as: summary of findings tables, standardized language reflecting the level of certainty in effect estimates, logic frameworks, and brief economic summaries; and have contributed to the further development of these methods. This work has helped to establish formal and transparent methods within global malaria guidance, and contributed to improved standards in global guidance more broadly.
