In the third phase, we engaged with five child health experts drawn from the Ministerial Committee on Morbidity and Mortality in Children under five (CoMMiC) from four provinces, as health programme and policy specialists relevant to the health-related challenges identified by community and health system stakeholders. Invitations to the workshop were forwarded to the child health experts individually, and the workshop was arranged at a date and venue convenient for the participants. An interactive workshop was facilitated by the researchers and guided by a semi-structured agenda to allow for contributions and discussions by the participants. An overview of the VAPAR programme was presented, with a focus on the verbal autopsy (VA) innovations regarding the causes and circumstances of avoidable mortality in children under 5 years of age, as well as insights from the participatory action research (PAR) process on how these could be addressed collaboratively. Discussions during the workshop focused on health system research processes and the identification of gaps and opportunities to embed such processes into the health system. A report of the workshop was shared with participants for validation.
