At EDC, we are skilled at applying evidence to inform policies on a wide range of issues. We use data and incorporate multiple perspectives into briefings, white papers, and consultations that inform discussions and lead to concrete actions for government and community initiatives.
We support policy implementation and change management processes, building public will and addressing financing, workforce, and other challenges. We bring together diverse working groups and work with policymakers at multiple levels, including local school and clinic administrators as well as decision makers in ministries and federal agencies.
No matter where our efforts are aimed, we demonstrate a longstanding commitment to collaboration and informed policy improvements that are grounded in science, knowledge, evidence, and experience.
