Fogarty-funded researchers launched a multifaceted study generating evidence that helped bring about tobacco tax increases and anti-smoking legislation
Implementation science is the study of methods to promote the adoption and integration of evidence-based practices, interventions and policies into routine health care and public health settings. Implementation research plays an important role in identifying barriers to, and enablers of, effective global health programming and policymaking, and leveraging that knowledge to develop evidence-based innovations in effective delivery approaches.
As outlined in the Center's Strategic Plan, Fogarty aims to support research and research training in implementation science using a distributed approach across its programs. Also, projects coordinated by the Center for Global Health Studies (CGHS) at Fogarty support implementation science research methods and frameworks, and use innovative approaches to supporting implementation science. These projects address a wide variety of critical global health research areas, such as HIV prevention, transmission and treatment; household air pollution; mobile health; and brain disorders.
