The aim of this discussion (brainstorming session) is to get ideas from G-I-N members from all over the world on how to engage stakeholders for the Africa community. We currently seek a variety of stakeholders including ministries of health, development agencies, healthcare consumers, clinicians and knowledge translation institutions. We hope that they can share their experiences and challenges and also link us with possible funders for some of our activities especially the capacity building in development and evaluation of clinical practice guidelines in Africa.
