UNiTED has extensive research experience since 2010. In this year we started our first health needs assessment in the area of Kpando. Results of this research have formed the foundation for many of our projects and have also led to further research. All research activities have been implemented by master students from Europe and the U.S. under supervision of our team and their educational supervisor. From 2010 until late 2017 we have done exploratory qualitative research on various topics of health and social related nature. Our 2016 – 2020 strategic plan describes who the focus will move from baseline exploratory research to quantitative impact evaluation of our projects. Besides that we will focus on specializing in certain research tools and methods. To find out more about our research activities, click here.
