This publication is an editorial by Christian Dagenais and Valery Ridde produced for volume 32, number 3 of the Gaceta Sanitaria Journal, called Research for health in Latin America – Collaboration, publication and application of knowledge, which was published in May 2018. Since 2010, the research teams that the authors work with have produced dozens of policy briefs (PB) with the purpose of informing the various stakeholders of the results of their studies and their usefulness regarding public health practices, decision-making and policy change. Based on these experiences, the two researchers have developed a guide for preparing policy briefs. In this editorial, they present a PB format intended for a non-scientific audience, to act as an influence on practices and policy-making.
