In public health, evidence generated by research can form the basis of effective new laws, regulations and standards. For a variety of reasons, research evidence is often unable to reach policy-makers, regulators and practitioners. Findings from in-depth interviews with researchers from five public health projects in low- and middle-income countries provide insights into different strategies that facilitate collaboration and communication between stakeholders, including policy-makers and practitioners.
