ABSTRACT

Social Science Support for COVID-19: Lessons Learned Brief 1: What Social Sciences Researchers Working in Humanitarian Contexts (Sub-Saharan Africa) Should Be Asking in COVID-19 and Why   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "There can be a tendency when first starting research around a topic, or responding in a crisis, to rapidly try to gather as much data as possible, as quickly as possible. Whilst this can result in a rich dataset of useful information, it may not be the best use of time, and may overlook key thematic data needed to influence humanitarian programme interventions. This brief was developed based on evidence and lessons learned from CASS [Social Sciences Analysis Cell] studies, to guide social scientists working in humanitarian programmes, or actors seeking to use social sciences research inside their COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] response in Sub-Saharan Africa. It provides a summary of suggested key social sciences research questions and their rationale to support and inform in operational field research and response programming in the Sub-Saharan African context."
