The evidence collected will clarify key issues to consider for the public health strategy.

To support ministries of health develop their detailed public health strategies for inclusion in ASGM National Action Plans (NAP), WHO, in collaboration with the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute, developed a research approach. The approach was pilot tested in three African countries in the process of developing a NAP. The evidence collected and the recommendations that emerged by applying the research approach guided ministries of health and other stakeholders in developing the public health strategies.
