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.
