Implementation Research Division

The Implementation Research Division is responsible for conducting health research and scientific evaluations in the area of HIV prevention, care, and treatment.

We are a multi-disciplinary group that applies scientific inquiry into questions concerning the implementation of policies, programmes or practices that contribute to national, regional and global strategies and targets. We study various approaches to translate effective interventions into health care policy and practice.

We use a variety of disciplines including epidemiology, biostatistics, health policy, health economics, management sciences, sociology, psychology and others to identify, develop and measure the impact of innovative strategies to improve HIV and TB service delivery.

"We are a multi-disciplinary group that bridges the divide between researchers, practitioners and policymakers"

Prof. Geoffrey Setswe
Managing Director: Implementation Research Division

Main areas of focus include; case finding, diagnostics, care and case management, prevention and evaluation of health programmes.

We also use implementation research to improve the quality, efficiency, and effectiveness of service delivery strategies by integrating research methodology into program implementation.
