The Research to Policy Communication Cell (RPCC) within the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) is an online portal and repository of relevant evidence for tackling health problems in Bangladesh that was originally established as part of a Welcome Trust/WHO grant to icddr,b to enhance evidence-informed health policy making. The RPCC acts as a point of contact and communicator of high quality evidence for health policy decision-making between DGHS and the research community. Through RPCC- research evidence, knowledge of health issues and health interventions are disseminated in the form of policy briefs and full-length articles to both the public, research community and policy makers of Bangladesh.
This website aims to be a one-stop-shop of information for those interested in health research and health policy in Bangladesh. Hosted by the DGHS, this website pulls together health research evidence from academic publications, policy briefs, newspapers and other source
SHARE (Strengthening Health, Applying Research Evidence) project implemented by icddr,b is supporting the DGHS to strengthen RPCC. This is a capacity building initiative under the European Union’s ‘Supporting Public Health Institutes Programme’ (SPHIP) being implemented in eight countries including Bangladesh.
