Research, Evaluation Studies, and Surveys (RES&S)
As an organization with a comprehensive mission to create a positive and sustainable socio-economic change in the lives of the poor and disadvantaged, particularly women, indigenous people and person with disability supported by various social development programmers and services. BASA has made a strong commitment to continual research, studies, evaluation and surveys. Our RES&S efforts serve multiple purposes. Findings from our studies inform the development of improved national policies and system practices, and contribute to stronger communities, families and individuals. Our growing bodies of results enable us to evaluate BASA’s programmatic effectiveness and impact. We also conduct formative and intervention research to generate new knowledge for the larger health and rights of community, including findings from assessments of innovative or previously-untested programmatic approaches. Targeted dissemination of RES&S evidence to reach appropriate audiences is an integral part of our RES&S efforts, prioritizing local stakeholders, and ultimately, through professional conferences, seminars and journals.
BASA’s research is grounded on a set of guiding principles that address our commitment to scientific excellence, meaningful collaboration between country and international partners, ethical protections of research participants, local, regional and global dissemination of results, and transparent communication.
