Operational research

Through operational research, we learn about the interventions, strategies, and tools that can enhance the quality, effectiveness, or coverage of programmes. The end goal of operational research is to support implementers in the decision-making process regarding the type of interventions that offer greater opportunity to address the needs and realize the rights of the target audience of a project and programme. Our team can support you in the design and implementation of an operational research process, including helping you to consolidate all critical information requested as part of the approval from Ethical Committees.
