CIF undertakes rigorous, high quality research contributing to policy in low- and middle-income countries. Using evidence-based data and recommendations at the national, sub-national and regional level, we contribute to the efficiency and sustainability of health systems.
We supply decision makers with research results that enable them to use efficient and evidence-informed approaches when reforming health systems, allocating resources, improving functionality, or assessing policies.
CIF assesses the transition from donor-funded programs into local or national policy by analyzing factors impacting the program’s results. This permits us and our local partners to identify strategic and operational solutions to assure program sustainability.
We evaluate the effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability of donor funded programs, highlighting successes and best practices. We identify key challenges and lessons learned, thus helping donors improve the design and performance of future projects.
