SUPPORT Tools for evidence-informed health Policymaking (STP)

The SUPPORT tools for policymaking were published as a series of articles in Health Research Policy and Systems in December 2009: www.health-policy-systems.com/supplements/7/S1. The tools were written for people responsible for making decisions about health policies and programmes (i.e., health system managers and policymakers) and for those who support them.

The SUPPORT Tools are available in five languages:

The French, Portuguese and Spanish versions can be found here: http://bit.ly/SUPPORT_Tools
