Research is intrinsic to the mission of West African Centre for Public Health and Development.
We do this to inform Program strategy and direction, establish baseline levels, measure and verify program outcomes.
The research methods we employ include quantitative and qualitative surveys, rounds of BBS assessment, epidemiological surveillance, data triangulation and innovative methods of collecting sensitive behavioral information, such as pooling booth surveys.
