r e a c h uses both conventional and participatory tools and principles to help teams improve program outcomes, enhance organizational change and learning, and promote community transformation. By drawing on the dual purpose of action research–to simultaneously yield change (the ‘action’) and understanding (the ‘research’)–teams improve program-impact.

r e a c h consultants conduct field research to evaluate programs, document good practices and produce evidenced-based informed advocacy strategies.   r e a c h consultants train, coordinate, facilitate with partners  in technical areas such as strategic planning, utilization-focused evaluation, program development, facilitation and capacity building.

r e a c h is best known for supporting community mobilization and structural interventions to strengthen vulnerable populations including women, girls, and those at risk of disease, marginalization and social exclusion.

Reach led a four-person team to evaluate a HIV/AIDS prevention and national capacity building initiative. The evaluation was guided by a Community Led Structural Interventions (CLSI) framework, including four objectives related to HIV vulnerability reduction, targeted interventions, management by CBOs, and learning through capacity building. The methodology combined quantitative analysis (from project and CMIS reports) and qualitative analysis (from observations, focus group discussions and in-depth interviews).

Descriptions of twelve case studies, through qualitative inquiry, were compiled to 1) understand the problems, challenges, triggers of change, processes and achievements in twelve select case studies; and, 2) to identify best practices for future programming in HIV/AIDS multi-sectoral programming. As the twelve case studies reveal, the obstacles raised were overcome through multiple complimentary interventions. Many felt that the intervention strategy that had the most influence was the parent consent and community sanction activities. Livelihood skills-building opportunities opened doors in countless ways and provided an important entry to address HIV/AIDS risk and vulnerability. Instead of bringing high risk and symptomatic patients to inaccessible and unavailable services far from where health seekers reside, the program invested in delivering services directly to communities themselves. Capacity building through workshops and training events brought about confidence and skills that led to livelihood opportunities that were never thought possible. Government buy-in brought quality services in the spirit of collaboration between the government and civil society organizations. Lastly, creativity and innovation through a spirit of risk-taking, often against fierce opposition, is a hallmark of this program. for download the case study documents please click on the below link.

r e a c h uses empirically sound applied research methods that are impartial and non-ideological. Our studies have demonstrated the critical links between social equity and wellbeing. Using mixed methods, it tackles the complexities and layers apparent in a variety of contexts and situations — for example, how women’s sexuality is linked to empowerment and not merely danger.
