SAfAIDS Policy & Research Unit:

Facilitating Evidence-Based Action across the Southern Africa Region

 

At SAfAIDS we firmly believe that research evidence should be the starting point of all our programmes. It is the foundation on which policies and programmes are built. As such, the Policy and Research Unit works closely with policy makers and programme partners at regional and national level to facilitate the translation of research into action.

 

The Policy and Research unit is responsible for all policy and research-related activities for the organisation. The following are the core activities of the unit:

  • Conducting original research on HIV and SRH-related issues to inform advocacy activities.
  • Analysing policy and research data for repackaging, dissemination, and utilization in the region.
  • Conducting Implementing science (operations research) for organizational projects.  
  • Developing develop policy materials (e.g. policy briefs, position papers) for publication.

The Policy and Research section has the following key areas (also on the sub-menu on top):
