Studies

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.

Global and regional studies

Our team is prepared to support the implementation of global and regional studies by using desk-based research and field research. Thanks to the work IWORDS has carried out over the past few years, we are ready to conduct these studies in the most participatory way, involving co-researchers from key target populations.

Participatory methodologies

Depending on the circumstances of each context and programme, we use a variety of approaches that go beyond a simple collection of data in an attempt to reach a meaningful engagement with all concerned actors and stakeholders.

Evidence-based publications

Since our foundation, we have provided support to multiple organizations in the development of technical publications (such as protocols, guidelines, programmatic guides, toolkits, training packages) on topics such as healthcare access, youth agency, gender, and SRHR. Technical publications require a thorough desk review process, identifying authoritative sources, reviewing similar publications to avoid duplication of efforts, understanding your audiences, conducting consultations with target audiences, brainstorming, drafting, editing, and translating.
