ESHPM is one of the academic partners in the consortium. They are also responsible for the coordination of the programme. ESHPM is one of the Schools of Erasmus University Rotterdam in the Netherlands. They are the leading School on health policy and management in the Netherlands.

KIT contributes to the programme in close collaboration with the HPC in Jordan.

The HPC is one of the knowledge platforms in the programme and is responsible for the activities in Jordan. The HPC acts as reference center for all population & development related issues and information. The Council aims to facilitate setting policies, strategies and action plans in accordance with best practices, and monitor and evaluate their implementation. In addition, they advocate and raise awareness about policies and strategies and enhance national capabilities in this area. These activities are conducted in coordination with partners and stakeholders to achieve sustainable development, justice, and equal opportunities. HPC also hosts the local Share-Net knowledge hub: Share-Net Jordan. In that capacity, they organise stakeholder gatherings, trainings, and synthesise available evidence.

The Effective Health Care Alliance Programme (EHCAP) Nigeria, at the Calabar Institute of Tropical Diseases Research and Prevention, University of Calabar in Nigeria, is one of the knowledge platforms involved in the Support-KT consortium. Their aim is to promote access to relevant evidence and to support evidence-informed policymaking. EHCAP hosts the local Cochrane Associate Centre: Cochrane Nigeria. Cochrane is an international not-for-profit and independent organization, dedicated to making up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of healthcare readily available worldwide. It produces and disseminates systematic reviews of healthcare interventions and promotes the search for evidence in the form of clinical trials and other studies of interventions. Cochrane Nigeria was established in February 2006.

The CDBPS-H is one of the knowledge platforms in the programme and is responsible for the activities in Cameroon. CDBPS-H is a facilitating center for the application and exchange of knowledge through the promotion of interaction between researchers and health decision-makers. This initiative should benefit researchers by collecting, synthesizing, reformatting and communicating the research evidence in an attractive and readable form for decision-makers. The CDBPS-H also aims to serve decision-makers by providing capacity building opportunities, producing summaries of evidence at the request and identifying gaps for informed decision making. CDBPS-H was formally established in 2006 as EVIPNet Cameroon.

Cochrane International supports the programme and is actively involved in the dissemination of its products.
