Commentary in Global Health: Science and Practice. Key messages:

  • Implementation research (IR) is an emerging research area that helps research and public health programs achieve impact at scale. We sought to collate and share health research funders’ experiences with funding of IR activities in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).
  • We identified and grouped the funders’ strategies into 7 approaches that are considered important when supporting IR in LMICs.
  • Our analysis offers broad direction and guidance to funding agencies and related partner organizations on important elements to consider when funding and implementing IR in LMICs. Ultimately, this work could help improve the impact of research investments in LMICs.
