Research and evaluation

After 5 years of the project, CCRD conducted the end-line survey from December, 2011 to May, 2012 to measure the change of project indicators as well as to provide independent evaluation on the outcomes, achievements and limitations of the project’s implementation

CCRD is one of five organizations which have been selected as Pathways Lead Partners of “Pathways for participation” – a project under PEPFAR funded by United States Agency for International Development (USAID). This 5-year project will be implemented in 9 provinces and completed by 2016. The aim of the project is to enhance the capacity and position of civil society organizations (CSOs) providing HIV services at community level in order to improve service quality and access to services of people living with HIV (PLHIV) and  most-at-risk populations (MARPs).

 

The purpose of the evaluation exercise is to collect socioeconomic and demographic data and information as well as knowledge on HIV/AIDS, reproductive health/family planning in order to measure, describe and analyze achievements of the project’s objectives as well as the impacts of drama “Desire of Life” at the end of the project.

MSM are one of the most at-risk populations for HIV infection and are highly stigmatized, yet few studies have examined alcohol use as a risk factor for sexual behavior. Focusing on the relationship between alcohol consumption and sexual risk taking among men who have sex with men (MSM)the Center for Community Health Research and Development (CCRD) will conduct the research “Alcohol Abuse, Stigma and Sexual Risks: Triple Burden among MSM in Hanoi, Vietnam”.

 

CCRD’s mission is to contribute to the improvement and equity of health care and social advancement for the Vietnamese people through a systematic and sustainable approach that combines sound knowledge, cultural sensitivity and capacity building.
