What an amazing year for the Africa Evidence Network secretariat! We are looking ahead to the New Year with so much excitement since 2020 will be filled with lots of interesting activities. The final newsletter of 2019 features what the AEN is looking forward to in 2020, which includes the Evidence 2020 Conference among other things. You can also enjoy reading about the lessons learnt from enhancing the evidence-informed policy-making field by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. Precious Motha, the AEN coordinator, shares her reflections on the Network's key highlights for 2019 in this month’s blog.
