Research and Evaluation at Ipas Development Foundation (IDF) aims to design, develop, and conduct high-quality research, evaluation and program monitoring that leads to evidence-based strategies and guides program implementation. The team monitors the implementation of CAC and CCC programs, through regular collection and analysis of data for a broad range of subjects, including, health care providers, intervention facilities, and women of reproductive age (15-44 years), including young women (15-24 years).
The impact of interventions is evaluated by conducting pre- and post-intervention cross-sectional or longitudinal studies that use a quasi-control or experimental design. These evaluation studies aim to gather evidence-based learnings from various geographical and political scenarios, to inform future efforts.
We also conduct clinical and non-clinical research to understand new issues and areas to identify gaps in policy and health systems.
