AGPHI collaborates with various local, national, and international organizations on projects ranging from literature reviews to full-scale community needs assessments. If you or your organization are interested in working with our research lab on an existing or new project, please email us at email@example.com.
BCSE COVID-19 Mexico
This project has several sub-teams focused on areas such as social media and communication, research and data analysis, workshop/seminar development and others to develop a mutli-lateral approach in addressing COVID-19 vaccine adoption in Mexico. The team is currently working with an extensive data set with over 10,000+ data points and is in the process of publishing their research findings.
This project aims to conduct a program evaluation to examine the WHEELS Global Foundation’s telemedicine model. The project will evaluate the value of telemedicine services and its effectiveness in managing high blood pressure in the patient population over the course of 12 months.
Mycetoma Surveillance and Control
Drawing from a pool of mycetoma literature, surveillance protocols, and control evidence base generated by the Mycetoma Research Centre and members of the WHO Global Mycetoma Working Group, this project aims to provide a succinct, actionable set of mycetoma surveillance and control recommendations nested within Ethiopia's existing community health and neglected tropical disease (NTD) priorities. Working closely with Arba Minch University and AGPHI alumni Ezra Jerome, who helped develop the mycetoma surveillance application.
This project works in partnership to implement, evaluate and compare the BORN (Birth Oximetry Routine for Newborns) in different countries. This project will rely heavily on data analysis and interpretation as well as biostatistics.
Querétaro COVID-19 + Mental Health Study
This protocol will focus on knowing the prevalence of mental health symptoms; anxiety, depression, stress, insomnia, and drug use; as well as its relationship with psychosocial and of Queretaro socio-demographic variables, in reactive and non-reactive people to the molecular screening test for SARS CoV-2 of the Autonomous University of Queretaro.
Climate-Related Food Security Project
The team is working on a systems thinking project surrounding food security and migration issues in southern Madagascar. The first phase of our project involved creating a systems map based on available research and grey literature. The project's second phase will be a qualitative study done in food-insecure regions of southern Madagascar to gain an on-the-ground perspective of the issues communities face. Participants will be asked to draw
systems maps depicting their personal experience with food security and migration. The data will be aggregated to create a composite systems map that can be used as a model to guide further research or interventions. They are currently working with the UN Resident Coordinator’s Office of Madagascar to develop a study protocol to
submit to the IRB as well.
Climate Change Task Force
This task force was created to address issues surrounding environmental and climate justice locally, nationally, and hopefully around the world. The CCTF has worked on projects such as the “BUG” project which aims to build greener underpass areas within the neighborhood of Hunts Point in NYC in partnership with sustainability-driven environmental design firms and organizations. They are currently working on a literature review on the intersection of climate change and wastepicking.
Haiti Relief Team
Formally known as the Haitian Helping Angels Project, the team is now making progress toward writing a scoping review on NGO accountability in resource-constrained settings within low-income countries, such as Haiti as a setting. Dr. Emmanuel Peprah is serving as a faculty mentor and other deliverables include a commentary piece on the imperativeness to improve downward NGO accountability mechanisms and ensuring that these mechanisms incorporate decolonization methodologies.
