Join YouthPower Learning, UNICEF Office of Research – Innocenti, and Columbia University as we explore what is unique about research with adolescents, best practices for working with them, and key knowledge gaps. The speakers will focus on Conducting Research with Adolescents in Low - and Middle-Income Countries, a series of briefs produced with members of the Lancet Commission on Adolescent Health and Well-being.
Despite an increasing focus on adolescent well-being 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, the UNICEF Office of Research – Innocenti, Columbia University and members of the Lancet Commission on Adolescent Health and Well-being in May 2017 released a series of briefs on Conducting Research with Adolescents in Low - and Middle-Income Countries. This webinar provides 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 to discuss the topics 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.
