Research & Evaluation

At HAI, when we conduct research, we don’t just ask if something works, we ask how and for whom it works in practice.

As a Center of the University of Washington’s Department of Global Health, HAI’s Technical Advisors are considered world leaders in implementation science and health systems research. This means HAI is uniquely positioned to assess the effectiveness of health interventions, programs, and policies in the countries where we work.  We use that position and our technical and financial resources to improve the function of public sector health systems.

By making certain our research and evaluations are always conducted in partnership with Ministries of Health and local public research institutions, HAI is building local research capacity while ensuring that data and analyses are already in the hands of those in a position to use them. 

From CQI to DQA, cluster-randomized to stepped-wedge, HAI has a wealth of expertise and decades of experience using research and evaluation to inform real-world improvements to health care delivery.

Implementation Science is a systematic, scientific research approach that asks: How does this work in practice? Often, we think of Implementation Science as reducing the “know-do gap;” or, how to get “what we know works” to those who need it with the greatest speed, fidelity, efficiency, and coverage.
