A second MoH-CREAMS meeting take place in Lilongwe

A second meeting of partners forming a committee working towards formation of a

Knowledge Translation Platform (KTP) for the Ministry of Health (MoH) in Malawi took place

at Kamuzu Central Hospital in Lilongwe on 12 June 2013. This is part of a series of meetings

funded by CREAMS through a grant from INASP. The inclusion of CREAMS on this platform

was agreed at the first meeting that took place at Community Health Sciences Unit (CHSU)

in Lilongwe on 8 May 2013. The ministry envisages that the KTP will comprise many partners

with complementary expertise. The national bibliographic database of CREAMS is the first

contribution to the process of creation of KTP. Beyond this initial contribution CREAMS has

been mandated with production of policy briefs and pave the way towards building capacity

for Systematic Reviews within the MoH Research Unit. CREAMS will lead the working group

in the production of a Reproductive and Maternal Health Policy Brief before the end of

2013.
