Health Programs

Ensuring that the health programs funded by the United States and other governments and nongovernmental organizations are effectively designed and implemented is an important part of improving quality of life around the world. NORC researchers’ public health and country-specific knowledge has allowed them to inform the design and conduct impact evaluations of projects addressing a variety of global health concerns, including family planning, disease prevention, bio-security, food and water supply, and the use of conditional cash transfers to promote healthy behaviors.

NORC conducts a performance and impact evaluation of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)’s School Health and Reading Program in Uganda. The program includes an HIV/AIDS intervention to improve HIV/AIDS knowledge, attitudes, and practices among primary and secondary school students.
