ERIM Consulting provides technical expertise for our partners and clients, supporting them to transform the systems that shape health and wellbeing in their communities.
We support our clients on:
Evidence generation: While clients may need high-quality evidence to drive implementation, they also have constraints such as time and finances and competing priorities. We work to gather high quality and useful evidence tailored to clients’ specific needs. This allows projects to be responsive to clients’ contexts and constraints, while still prioritizing quality.
Stakeholder engagement: Public health practitioners need to liaise closely with the public, decision-makers, and actors from other fields like urban planning, agriculture, policy, amongst others. We work with our clients to share evidence in ways that diverse players can understand, own and participate in. We can support you to plan and execute stakeholder engagement projects such as policy dialogues, workshops, training sessions. We can also support you to create associated stakeholder engagement, communication and knowledge translation tools including policy briefs, proposals, blogs, handouts, and slides, to mention but a few.
Partnership development: You may need to get a grant approved, a tool launched, a policy passed, or a community action taken. Whatever it is, you need partners to improve public health. We support clients to identify relevant stakeholders and to craft and implement strategies to leverage existing resources across these partners. We can help you think through your partnership strategy, and to develop appropriate and effective tools to connect with each player in your strategy.
Project management and research support: We can help you to devise research projects to meet your needs, coordinate study and project plans and partners, build capacity within your team, and create tools to ensure each aspect of your project runs smoothly.
General technical consultation: You may simply need help in an advisory capacity – a trusted team to check in with on plans, methodologies, for feedback, revisions and a second objective opinion. We can help you with this as well.
