This paper describes the methods of implementation and evaluation of EIPH training courses by the CPHG, reporting participant experiences, as well as the impact the courses have had on individuals' capacity for accessing and using evidence to inform programmes and policies aiming to improve public health. In doing so, this paper aims to stimulate discussion about how international efforts to improve the exchange in knowledge, quality of research, uptake of evidence into practice and co-generation of contemporary knowledge, could be addressed through ongoing improvements in training and capacity building.
