Large-Scale Surveys PROJECTS
Kimetrica was contracted by UK's Department of International Development (DFID) to undertake a client feedback survey about the capacity building services provided by the African Risk Capacity (ARC) Agency to its member countries. The survey tools were designed and administered by the Kimetrica team through telephone interviews to Government representatives of 11 member countries. The survey's goal was to determine ARC Member States' satisfaction with the ARC Agency services. The findings of these surveys contributed to the improvement of ARC capacity building in the future.

Research and Evaluation PROJECTS
With the significant expansion of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis (TB), and support for Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) programs in Africa, there was both an urgent need to meet the demand for expanding programs and, at the same time, to address the increased food security and nutritional needs of beneficiaries. Under a contract with UNAIDS, Kimetrica conducted a study on smallholder incomes and market opportunities and how they would be impacted, if farmers were to supply food for people undergoing antiretroviral therapy (ART), TB patients in treatment, and for OVC programs. Kimetrical also had to study the feasability of such an initiative. To that effect, Kimetrica conducted case studies in six African countries to gain insight and practical knowledge of the potential benefits, costs, risks and constraints of investing in smallholder supply chains for donor-funded health and social protection programs. In addition, Kimetrica's staff mapped potential partners in 20 African countries, ranging from NGOs to farming groups to health facilities, that could manage procurement of food from small farmers to clients of social protection programs. The study’s findings were used to develop programs to support smallholder production and to provide nutritional support to HIV/AIDS, TB and OVC beneficiaries.
