Cochrane South Africa (SA) is part of the global, independent Cochrane network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers and people interested in health. Cochrane is a non-profit organisation that prepares and disseminates information (in the form of reviews) on what works and what doesn’t in health care.

These reviews enable policy makers, health service providers and the public to make informed decisions about health care.   

Building on fifteen years of experience in research custodianship, synthesis and communication, Evidence Aid works to ensure that humanitarian actors have access to the very best evidence, presented in clear, simple formats, so that they can design and deliver the interventions that will be most likely to save lives and livelihoods.

They aim to advance the art and science of supporting evidence use, with a particular focus on evidence capacities, evidence communities and evidence synthesis. To these ends, they research and review: the practical experiences and craft knowledge of people across Africa; the evidence about what works for supporting evidence use, how and why; and the contexts in which evidence-informed decision-making takes place, including political analysis.

They also contribute to the development of theory and methods about evidence use.

ZeipNET is a non-governmental organisation working in Zimbabwe to promote the use of research evidence in policy making in Zimbabwe and the Southern African Region. 

ZeipNET was established to develop and coordinate over-arching national processes that support the use of research evidence in policy making. It does this through capacity building and active engagement of all stakeholders involved in the policy-making matrix. 

These actors include policymakers and influencers, research institutions and think tanks, academia, the media, government and civil society. They believe that judicious use of evidence in policy processes has potential to transform lives.
