Evidence and Learning

The SCTG works to coordinate and broker knowledge generated and accumulated across partners and initiatives in pursuit of the SCTG’s overall objectives.

Through its Evidence and Learning Working Group, the SCTG seeks to leverage and elevate the evidence and knowledge-generating activities of partners and stakeholders as well as to understand the self-care evidence needs and priorities of countries. We aim to produce evidence and learning resources that are global goods and resources that reflect and/or can be used or adapted within a country context to support an evidence-based self-care movement.

The Evidence and Learning Working Group

The SCTG’s Evidence and Learning Working Group (ELWG) contributes to, develops, and promotes evidence to fill gaps in information identified and prioritized by implementers, advocates, and policymakers to accelerate, scale-up, and sustain the policy and practice of self-care within health systems at national and subnational levels. ELWG seeks to advance the evidence base for self-care as an avenue to achieve universal health coverage (UHC)​, and is best suited to implementers, researchers, and national policy makers.

ELWG meets on an as needed basis, roughly every 3 months, to advance its workstreams which currently include:

  • Digital Self-Care Framework (HealthEnabled)​
  • Quality of Care Framework (PSI and SCTG)​
  • Self-Care Policy Mapping (Self-Care Academic Research Unit (SCARU), Imperial College, London)​
  • SBC Self-Care Framework (Breakthrough Action)​
  • Measurement Framework(Commissioned firms TBD)
  • Costing Framework (Commissioned firms TBD)
  • Systematic review of evidence needs (Commissioned firms TBD)
