This WP aims to conduct administrative work to establish one headquarter of the Center for Evidence into Health Policy within each partner university, prepare for developing educational modules and materials and develop preparatory documents for internship placements
The implementation of this WP is instrumental for the development of the project as it is closely linked with WP2, WP3, and WP4. This WP ensures the creation of the Center for Evidence into Health Policy and the development of the training program delivered within the project and the establishment of the formal structures needed to support the delivery of the training program. Specifically, the WP comprises: the establishment of a national network of public institutions and NGOs with each university (by month 5), which will offer internship placements for centers’ trainees, during WP2; the development of preparatory documents for internship placements; the administrative work conducted by University of Tunis, University of Sfax and University of Sousse to plan the establishment of one headquarter of the Center for Evidence into Health Policy in each of the three universities; and the development of the training materials (by month 7) which are planned to be delivered in WP2.
1.1 Create the Center for Evidence into Health Policy
In order to accomplish this activity, the University of Sfax will be involved in the process in order to provide support as the head office of the Center for Evidence into Health Policy will be within the University.
1.2 Create a headquarter of the Center for Evidence into Health Policy within each of the two remainingTunisian universities
All partner universities are involved in this process, and moreover, each university will be responsible of its headquarter. Each headquarter will be properly equipped through the proposed project in order to ensure a suitable infrastructure.
1.3. Develop a communication platform for the Center for Evidence into Health Policy
The content of the platform will be collaboratively developed in English by all the members of the consortium. USFAX will work to constantly update it.
1.4 Establish partnerships with the Ministry of Health and its public health subordinated institutions, as well as NGOs and private institutions.
This will be made possible through the three headquarters of the Center for Evidence into Health Policy established in each of the three partner universities and which will act as an open resource for all trainees interested in enhancing their practical work experiences, networking between the academic and non-academic environment and facilitating the implementation of trainee internship place.
The UBB will monitor the entire process and make sure the work conducted under this WP is implemented according to the project timeline. Furthermore, UBB has experience establishing such a Center in its own university and can provide targeted support for any partner university who has difficulty in this task.
