Zimbabwe Needs To Research And Use Evidence When Making Policy


The country’s policymakers have been urged to use research evidence when coming up with policy so as to prevent policy flops and inconsistencies, the Zimbabwe Evidence Informed Policy Network (ZeipNET) told journalists in Harare.

The Zimbabwean government has been recognized for crafting good policies that, are not usually properly implemented.

Speaking in Harare, ZEipNET director Ronald Munatsi said the organisaton would be working with different government departments to ensure policy consistency.

“For Zimbabwe to prevent policy failures, policy inconsistencies and misplaced development priorities, there is need to base policy decision on sound scientific research evidence,” he said.

“In theory, the policymaking process appears very simple and linear, but in reality, it is non-linear, very complex and multifactorial.”

Munatsi said there were a lot of complexities in coming up with proper and well-informed policies that are also determined by the depth and quality of information and knowledge used by the policymakers.

He said lack of proper implementation due to the use of other evidence, which are not research based, were affecting the country’s policies.

Munatsi said as an organisation, they were trying to work with key people in government to address the matter.

“Generally, Zimbabwe has good policies, but you will appreciate that having good research does not automatically translate into good policies. The policies are good, but we are known for having good policies and bad implementation.

“So, you find that if you cannot implement a policy effectively, then essentially, it means there is a flaw in the way that policy was developed,” he added, at the same time reiterating that policies needed to be informed by rigorous research, stakeholder consultations, practice-informed knowledge, citizen participation, accurate data and statistics.

Zimbabwe’s policies have dismally failed due to political interference and political inconsistence.

  31. You’re on a roll ! Loving all your different outfits recently, they look beyond cool ! That top is gorgeous, and so is that cap !

  32. Hi I would lyk to know whether is odimune works exactly as ARVs? Do I have 2 take it for the rest of my life even though my cd4 count is high?, actually I want to know that is there a difference between a person who is taking odimume at night and a person who is taking three tablet at am and pm?

  33. When my mother was in labor for 36 hours she and my grandmother looked out the window at the same time and watched a coyote come out of a bush look at the pair of them then transformed into a bald eagle and flew away. Since then I have spoken to a shaman and he said they witnessed the trickster watching over my birth.

  34. before I was born, my name was chosen to be Waylon. during the delivery I’ve been told that I cried like a coyote, so they named me Waylon coyote, like a play on words. not only is it my spirit animal, its also my namesake.

  35. OH. MY. GOODNESS. Those look absolutely worth any extra time spent on the treadmill ! I’m all about “everything in moderation” but with those in my kitchen, I might have to redefine my definition of moderation;)

  36. The only thing good about the place is the cool climate, all others things are eye sore. The whole place is a disaster waiting to happen (again). Be ready with your emergency contingency plans.

  37. I had a dream that my boyfriend and I were getting ready for christmas lunch in a chalet on his mom’s farm. When I looked out of the window I saw a lion approach the chalet and so obviously I ran to shut all the doors and windows but they wouldn’t lock. The lion came into the chalet and somehow we got him out. And he wondered off but then came back and started circling the chalet, trying to get in. We tried to get out but the windows were either too high off the ground or there was a dense bush full of thorns so we couldn’t pass through it. I was panicking and asking my boyfriend to phone his parents to come help us but he wouldn’t, and then when I grabbed my phone the battery was dying so I had to put it on charge. When I was doing that another lion got into the chalet through a opening in the wall but we managed to scare him off. I had gathered all the knives I could find in the chalet for our protection. Non of the doors were locking and it was really worrying me. We looked out of the window and more and more male lions kepts appearing, there were about 10 walking towards the chalet before I woke up.

  38. Best brownies I ever made. I was feared and revered the day I brought these in to the office. Not only is the caramel and peanut butter the best addition to a brownie you could ever imagine, but the brownie recipe all by itself is amazing!

  39. Night sweats is not included as a side effect in the summary of product information for efavirenz. It could plausibly happen if you are having the very bad dreams or nightmares. If you are not having these at the same time though, please talk to your doctor in case it is a symptom of something else.

  40. I am not an Alaska native, nor do I live in Alaska. I’m from Wisconsin, but Alaska holds a special place for me – Denali National Park in particular. Now, while I want for more to do than to speak out here, or donate, I will say this. The science is against this. The destruction of the King Salmon runs would be immense and drastic. It would destroy a not insignificant portion of some of the most beautiful country on Earth. The economics are against it – job creation, while certainly a plus, is extremely temporary. Our own Governor Walker wishes to allow mining near the Bad River in Wisconsin, citing job creation as a significant motive. Jobs like this are temporary – the mine will die, and the dam, yesterday’s technology, will bring ruin to precious biodiversity, and is already obsolete. There are other, better ways. The dam must not be built.

  41. Hi, i am currently taking Atripla since 2012 and they still make me sleep like a dead person and when i tell my doctor that this Atripla is too strong for me he doesnt want to bealive me as one day i did took my wife’s medication (Atroiza) and i was like a normal person. meaning i didnt sleep like a dead person during the night and even when i woke up i was not feeling tired but when i take my medicine (Atripla) each and everyday i woke up i feel tired. Please advise me as my doctor doesnt want to bealive me as even my wife was taking Atripla and she was experiencing the same problem i have until her doctor change her to Atroiza and now she feel good. Please advise me as i am confused now.

  42. I don’t know if was dreaming it didn’t feel like a dream. I remember going to bed and waking up in cave. I slowly opened my eyes laying next a fire lighting the cave just a little light. Enough to I was in a cave I jump to my feet looking around for something I thought was lost or might of died. It was a weird wanton feeling. But there she was not dead not lost my wolf I hug her stroke her dead told her I missed. I stand up look out the cave opening into a dark forest I feel the night breeze on my face; and asked she if she if was ready (She was her name). she walks to my side and rubbed me I told her ” remember stay by side run with me.we begin to run I feel the forest a euphoric feeling fills my body. And im sitting up in my bed eyes wide open……. SAYING TO MYSELF MY WOLF SHE IS ALONE.

  43. We have been married for 9 years; on our 2nd year of marriage we discovered that my husband was HIV+ and I was HIV- even though we had unprotected sex. We have been using condoms for the past 7 years but we seldom have sex. This makes me feel guilty as I assume he has lost interest due to the use of condoms. At times I feel like we should continously have unprotected sex as I feel I am being too impossible and unreasonably strict……I am confused as I love my man and would like to see him happy also I love my life.

  44. I’ve painful red eyes after I was first given odimune 3 months ago and then given atroiza last month,what shall I do to correct this?I can’t see properly yet I have glasses which were prescribed by the optometrist.

  45. a buttefly flew into my house today and landed on my arm then slowly flew around me, despite the cold wet weather & i didnt think they survived this long it was beautiful in colour & seemed so calm, does this mean anything??

  46. It is difficult to know how to answer your post as the same three drugs are in Atripla and Atroiza. Sometimes when different formulations are used, people report that it takes a little time for their body to adjust again. You have the choice of continuing to see if their improves or to try to change back or to different meds.

  47. I do not even understand how I ended up right here, however I believed this submit used to be great. I don’t know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you happen to are not already 😉 Cheers!

  48. The only thing that will keep you healthy and your HIV under control are HIV meds. If you are having trouble with Atroiza you can ask at your clinic or doctor if there are other meds available.

  49. Thanks for your email. These symptoms are not side effects normally associated with Odimune. It’s important that you discuss these with a doctor incase they are a sign of another infection or illness.

  50. As the mother to two teens, I can totally relate to this. Teens communicate is a different way….a way that we are not used to. I remember taking the family phone into my room when I was a teen. There was no privacy and always got in trouble for tying up the family phone line.

  51. I was diagnosed HIV+ 2012 October and then my CD4 was 285 my doctor decided that i should be on treatment, but i was reluctant. In December 2013 i got sick with shingles. This year i decided to start treatment . I’ve started Tribuss. What are the side effects?

  52. Transit TV is pointless. It just adds noise to the environment and doesn’t help riders. Changing the screens to show bus wait times for upcoming transfer points would be very useful, especially given the design of the LA bus system.

  53. Any help ,i started taking atroiza in june while i was pregnant and have now delivered my HIV negative baby, so i would like to know that is this Atroiza only for pregnant woman? Am i going to be switched to a new treatment because im no longer pregnant? Please help.

  54. I love this! More so because you said you were no longer buying the phone and he has to. It really shows that since THEY have to buy, they can actually live without it. I refuse to buy the same thing twice. So if my son (who is only 6) breaks something then he is just poo out of luck!!!

  55. It sounds like your doctor is giving you good advice. As you take Atroiza at night, it is not a common side effect to be sick the following morning. Pregnancy on the other hand is associated with morning sickness, especially in the first few months.

  56. I started tribuss two weeks back and im still taking my vitamin supplements. I just want to know if i must stop taking vitamins or continue while taking tribuss?

  57. I was diagnosed HIV+ 2012 October and then my CD4 was 285 my doctor decided that i should be on treatment, but i was reluctant. In December 2013 i got sick with shingles. This year i decided to start treatment . I’ve started Tribuss. What are the side effects?
