Since its founding, IPA Sierra Leone has conducted policy-relevant research about innovative programs in agriculture, health, and community governance, while sharing evidence and building the capacity of local decision-makers to use it.


Most recently, IPA partnered with researchers, the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, and the International Growth Centre to evaluate the effects of social incentives, in the form of colorful bracelets, in reducing drop-off rates for immunization of newborn babies and improvements in timely visits for prenatal care.
