Bloomberg Philanthropies Data for Health Initiative at JHSPH


In collaboration with Instituto de Salud Publica, Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, JHSPH researchers conducted formative research to generate information on the willingness and acceptability to take mobile phone surveys in Colombia. The team also conducted user-testing and evaluated the feasibility of conducting nation-wide mobile phone surveys and the role of incentives in increasing response rates. Current work involves comparing reliability of different MPS modalities (CATI, IVR, SMS), reasons for non-response, and testing strategies to increase participation of under-represented groups such as females and older.
