Communicating the findings of your programme’s monitoring and evaluation—including what was and was not successful—benefits a wide range of stakeholders and can help advance policy, advocacy, and intervention development. Organisations can strategise on which types of communication products and methods are most effective to reach and influence different audiences. (Generally, it is most effective to share positive messaging that avoids normalising violence and to combine data and evidence with compelling stories and narratives.) The quality, relevance, and reach of communication products grow when researchers and practitioners co-create these outputs. Co-creation and co-authorship are also an important way to recognise practitioners’ value in building evidence.
