EVIPNet Europe Country launch in Ljubljana, Slovenia (2015)
EVIPNet Europe is supporting Slovenia in translating research evidence into policies. The network was launched through a two-day workshop in March 2014 with participants from the National Institute of Public Health (NIPH), the Ministry of Health, WHO (regional and country office representatives) and key personnel from major national public health agencies. The event was crucial to:
- raising awareness of and getting the support of national decision-makers and stakeholders for EVIPNet Europe and its future activities in Slovenia;
- familiarizing evidence-informed policy (EIP) leaders with the situation analysis methodology and conducting an EIP mapping exercise; and
- identifying national EIP capacity.
