The University of Medical Sciences and Technology (UMST) established the Reproductive and Child Health Research Unit (RCRU) as a think tank and leading centre for conducting research on maternal and child health in Sudan to produce evidences and research that can listen to hard-to-reach communities in conflict affected fragile states, and support evidence based health systems decisions and policies. RCRU is working in partnership with policy makers, health providers, and community leaders, local and international NGOs and Communities. While they are conducting research to generate evidence, they empower women, engage communities, and increase their level of readiness to participate in future projects, advocate for context understanding, and build capacity. RCRU implement innovative methodological approaches that overcome the challenges of conducting research in conflict or among hard-to-reach populations such as dealing with sensitive issues, lack of trust and high illiteracy rate.
