We will do so in the context of global health and health inequities, building on fundamental implementation science theory while learning from best-practice examples across the globe.

It takes more than a decade to implement evidence-based interventions in a real life setting (know-do gap) due to a myriad of impediments, especially in low-resourced settings. The goal of implementation science is to close this know-do gap by balancing theory and practical applications to examine and address gaps between the development of evidence-based health innovations and their delivery in routine practice. This summer course seeks to provide a brief overview of the theory, operational and evaluation approaches to implementation science.
