Evidence for Action
The Alliance played a key role in the DFID funded research programme consortium, Evidence for Action, whose five years of work finished in 2011. Click here to read the final report, detailing the key messages that came out over the five years of research in Africa and Asia.
As part of Evidence for Action and with SIDA funding through the Alliance’s Africa Regional Programme, the Alliance has led three main research projects. Key initiatives include exploring home-based care packages in the provision of antiretroviral therapy, examining the sexual and reproductive health needs of adolescents living with HIV, and the role of networks of people living with HIV. This research has been done in partnership with Alliance linking organisations in Zambia and Uganda, as well as SAT Zambia, NZP+ and TASO.
The Alliance continues to identify and take advantage of opportunities to partner with research institutions and other organisations to take forward research relevant to HIV and related health sectors. In particular, the Alliance is currently a leader in spearheading research to strengthen cross-sector understanding of Value for Money.
