- This introduction to a special issue about translating health research to practice describes the problems that present themselves when applying research results. The authors emphasise the importance of engagement from all relevant parties during the design, the fieldwork and the reportage of the research. Only if there is a sense of ownership regarding the project among policymakers, health workers and the target population, application is likely to succeed.
