Bloomberg Philanthropies Data for Health Initiative at JHSPH


In collaboration with Ifakara Health Institute, JHSPH researchers conducted formative research to generate information on the willingness and acceptability to take mobile phone surveys in Tanzania. 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 (IVR vs SMS), and reasons for non-response.
