Abstract: This proposal engaged with knowledge translation (KT) strategies and activities aimed to further expands the end-users of the evidence, tools and approaches developed by the project “Strengthening Health Systems Governance (project No. 103887-003)”. Knowledge translation activities was aimed to different users: Civil Society Organizations (CSO), general public, decision-makers and academia. To deliver the KT activities, the project team implemented diverse communicational means that respond to the needs of the different audience that was reached. Knowledge translation for CSO included town hall meetings in which audiovisual material was screened, in additional to educational newsletters and dissemination workshops. The general public was reached through radio programs specifically produced to deliver key messages to the public. Decision-maker and academia were reached through several policy-briefs. In addition to the above, this project had two important features: KT workshops for CSO were facilitated by community leaders who were the partners of the research project during its implementation. The second feature is that the project implemented individual and group interviews to explore the general public perceptions on the relevance and acceptance of the messages transmitted through community radios. Two seminar planned to present the policy-briefs could not be implemented due to unavailability of the key audience during the time schedule for that activity. This seminar will be nonetheless implemented in the first quarter of the year 2011 with the support of a different grant.
