PIP is a repository of peer-reviewed publications and grey literature that should generate knowledge for health policy decision-making. PIP should respond to the priority topics emerging in the policy-making process.
The project is an initiative of Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research (AHPSR) aiming at alleviating access barriers to policy-relevant information at national level in low-middle income countries. The piloting countries are: Georgia, Argentina, Pakistan and Nigeria.
In the pilot countries PIP implementing partners are: CIF, Argentina MoH, Pakistan King Edward Medical University and Nigeria Ebonyi State University.
CIF contributes to the whole PIP initiative by developing methodological approaches for grey literature evaluation.
The PIP project will be implemented during 2015-2016.
