We provide research evidence for policy and practice.

CHF has carried out projects and research activities in collaboration with many organizations, communities, and institutions.

CHF is primarily a not-for-profit research organisation. Our research must satisfy three criteria:

  • Use — research outcome must be useful for policy and or practice.
  • Capacity — the research process must have inbuilt succession mentoring, skill exchange, and embedded learning component for participants.
  • Collaborative — the intended product end-user must actively participate in the research from the onset.

  • Our research focus is to produce knowledge that policymakers and implementers require for improving access to, and the quality of the service they render to the public. The CHF team has researched various fields of interest, and influenced health, education, food and nutrition policy and service delivery.
