 How to Do Research with Adolescents Living in Low- and Middle-Income countries?

When: Thursday, November 16th 2017

9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. (EST)

About the webinar

Despite increasing focus on adolescent wellbeing globally, comprehensive data collection systems and research for effective interventions are lacking. Practitioners and policy-makers often ask, “How do we know what works?” and “How do we get this evidence?”

To assist with generating better evidence for adolescent programming and policy, in May, 2017, the UNICEF Office of Research – Innocenti,  Columbia University, and members of the Lancet Commission on Adolescent Health and Wellbeing released a series of briefs on Conducting Research with Adolescents in Low- and Middle-Income Countries.

This webinar offers an overview of the briefs, focusing on what is unique about research with adolescents, best practices for working with them, and key knowledge gaps. It also provides an opportunity for discussion with the series editors, including: indicators and data sources, ethics, research with disadvantaged and vulnerable groups, participatory research, social and structural determinants, and adolescent economic strengthening interventions.
