A major challenge for the research community is to take knowledge or evidence generated from research to the practitioners for translation into tangible practice. This paper describes how an indigenous Bangladeshi NGO addressed this challenge and made use of research in developing two of its most successful projects – the oral therapy extension programme and a grants-based programme for improving the lot of the ultra-poor. A study of the projects reveals that early involvement in identifying research issues and designing studies, communication between researchers and practitioners, relevance and timeliness of research, and customised dissemination were the key factors underpinning success.
