Research and Evaluation is integral to our program development and impact measurement.
Focusing on rigor and quality, we utilize a blend of public health research and implementation science to inform, improve and measure the impact of our work. As COVID-19 spread across the region, we recognized our ability to leverage our research capacity to understand the effects of the pandemic on patients and families.
Communicating During a Crisis:
Promoting Safe Behaviors During COVID-19
In partnership with IDFC and the Government of Punjab, we conducted needs finding and developed content for a campaign to promote timely COVID-19 testing in the state using behavioral science.
COVID-19 Needs Finding
We conducted surveys and analyzed trends across 4 Indian states with over 6,000 respondents between March - June 2020. These surveys aimed to understand overall risk perceptions, knowledge and practice of preventive behaviors (self-reported), and access to information.
