By ESSENCE on Health Research Initiative

This good practice document of the ESSENCE on Health Research initiative is designed to provide broad guidance on how best to strengthen research capacity with the maximum possible benefit. The guidance has been broken down into a number of principles and accompanied by illustrative examples to show how they have been adopted in practice, as well as some of the most commonly encountered barriers to their effective implementation. Rather than being prescriptive, or staking any claim to being the gold standard of practice, the document has been developed as a tool for further discussion.
