Knowledge Management, Research & Innovations

Our knowledge management and impact analysis (KMIA) unit is a dedicated team engaged in targeted assessments, snapshot surveys and operational and implementation research to explore the WHY behind big data trends.

Working with experts in their field to tackle HIV care and treatment’s biggest questions

OPHID believes that the best evidence and innovations are generated through inter-disciplinary and participatory methods.  We seek to include perspectives from stakeholders at all levels from the community through to experts from leading academic institutions around the world.  We have successfully formed collaborative partnerships with: University of California San Francisco and Berkeley, Harvard, University College London, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and Melbourne University to use cutting-edge theory-driven methods for our research and evaluation activities.

Generating evidence and Innovations

The primary goal of the unit is to understand bottlenecks to optimal performance and develop innovative solutions and methods to ensure all Zimbabweans access high quality HIV care and treatment and maternal, newborn and child health services.

Knowledge outputs that meet the needs of a variety of stakeholders

Outputs of the KMIA unit range from:

Knowledge outputs are intended to rapidly disseminate program assessments back to health system stakeholders and program staff to enable near to real-time course corrections and identify promising practices for replication.  These outputs are tailored to the intended end-user needs from:

  • clients accessing health services
  • health care workers
  • health care managers
