Dear colleagues,

I would like to bring your attention to a revised version of the TDR Implementation Research Toolkit which is now available on line at This version is divided into seven nonlinear modules.

The modules of the toolkit can be explored sequentially from the introduction to the end or taken as specific modules depending on the unique needs of individuals or research teams.

Presented visually on the landing page, each module includes ‘signposts’ to relevant sections of other modules as well as important ‘key messages’ to encourage the users navigate the site in their own way.

We invite you to explore the site and send us feedback / comments on your experience with the Toolkit using feedback forms provided on each page.  Your feedback will help us improve on the content and experience of this learning resource.

More information is available at and
