BRANCH Knowledge Translation Resources

A set of knowledge translation materials have been developed to help disseminate BRANCH research findings and increase their uptake among a wide range of stakeholders, including those making field-level decisions about how best to address the needs of conflict-affected women, newborns, children and adolescents.

These materials address the impact of conflict on the sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health and nutrition needs in conflict settings, with topics including: the current research landscape, the need for prioritizing and packaging health interventions, barriers and facilitators to delivering effective services, and key messages.

The Current Landscape of the Epidemiology and Burden

Describing the current research landscape of the epidemiology of sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health and nutrition (WCH) in conflict settings and the burden of conflict on WCH, these materials set the stage, highlight gaps in the current landscape and suggest potential opportunities for further research and filling in the research gaps.

Barriers and Facilitators to Delivering Effective Services

Providing an overview of the barriers and facilitators to delivering effective sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health and nutrition services in conflict settings, these materials share solutions that emerged across geographies and contexts.

Prioritizing and Packaging Health Interventions

Focusing on the need for more evidence-based guidance on identifying and implementing priority sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health and nutrition interventions in conflict settings, these materials also propose a framework for deciding on what to deliver, when and how, along with links to additional resources to consult.

Key Messages and Next Steps from BRANCH Research and Findings

Highlighting key messages in relation to sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health and nutrition in conflict settings that have emerged through BRANCH research, these materials also discuss potential next steps for a range of humanitarian actors.

The BRANCH Consortium would like to acknowledge PMNCH's support towards these knowledge translation resources.
