  • Final Analysis Workshop of

    In 2010, the University of Medical Sciences and Technology (UMST), Khartoum, Sudan, established the Reproductive and Child Health Research Unit (RCRU) as a thinking tank and leading centre for conducting research on maternal and child health in Sudan to produce evidence and to do research that can listen to hard-to-reach communities in conflict affected fragile states, and to support evidence based health system decisions and policies.

     

    We are working in partnership with policy makers, health providers, community leaders, local and international NGOs, and Communities.

     

    While we are doing research to generate evidence we empower women, engage communities, increase their level of readiness to participate in future projects, advocate for context understanding and build the capacity - we implement innovative methodological approaches that overcome the challenges of conducting research in conflict or among hard-to-reach population such as dealing with sensitive issues, lack of trust, high illiteracy rate, and competing with NGOs that provide services and food.

     

    Dr. Khalifa Elmusharaf

    Director, RCRU.
