We are performing actual intervention projects and research studies. Our interventions are always coupled with a critical analysis and evidence gathering towards best practices. Whilst even the most basic research Randomized Controlled Trials we participate in will always have a social and local component. All our work is done in close collaboration with local and national health authorities and service providers. The organization is thoroughly based on local Kenyan staff at all levels, with a large majority of women.
