The Partnership for Evidence and Equity in Responsive Social Systems (PEERSS) brings together partners from 13 countries, to strengthen the use of appropriate mechanisms and build conducive environments for advancing evidence-informed policymaking (EIP) in the social systems, with a focus on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

PEERSS partners, many with long-standing ties to ministries of health, learn from and support each other in promoting the use of research evidence in policymaking.

Our Mission

The mission of PEERSS is “Working together for better evidence, better decisions, better lives.”  

Our Governance

PEERSS is led by member partners representing regional clusters throughout the world and guided by a Strategic Decision Making Team. Results for Development serves as the coordinating organization for PEERSS.

Our Funders

PEERSS is jointly funded by the International Development and Research Center (IDRC) and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.

Amplifying a world of evidence

PEERSS research teams from 13 countries use systematic reviews, rapid syntheses of evidence, stakeholder dialogues and citizen panels to promote the use of evidence in policymaking.
