Formatted abstract
The increasing call for evidence-based policy making assumes a linear, positivist relation between the processes of knowledge creation, agenda setting and policy development. Yet the complexity of the policy process, and the very different value constructs of research mean that valuable research data has little value unless it is strategically mediated into the policy process.

The Evidence for Health Policy in Viet Nam (VINE) Project is a collaborative research project between the University of Queensland and the Health Strategy and Policy Institute and key Medical Universities in Viet Nam. It has been designed specifically to provide evidence to health policy makers, using a sequential structure that develops local skills, improves data collection, and sequentially builds knowledge that will inform policy decisions and priority resource allocation.

This paper will outline the logics of the research design, and explore the issues that now confront the research team as they seek to make this data available to policy makers. These issues will be explored in terms of the key stakeholders and the relationships between them, the context of policy making in a one party socialist state in transition, the content of currently proposed policy and the construction of the research data, and the complex relationships between these over time.
