Research

AccessMatters houses a widely respected research department that has both research and program evaluation expertise. Recent projects have focused on a range of sexual and reproductive health-related issues that, for example, include consumer knowledge and attitudes regarding contraception, LGBT health disparities, service needs of people affected by HIV, and cultural and linguistic challenges to service provision.

Research to change the world.


AccessMatters has the process, partners and publication experience to successfully advance sexual and reproductive health care. Working with our partners at leading research and medical institutions from around the country, we assist in experiment design, implementation and data analysis. Our goal is to use big data to review protocols for the advancement of sexual and reproductive health care delivery.

Our Process.


The work of AccessMatters research team emphasizes the importance of a mixed methods approach, utilizing focus groups, individual interviews, self-reporting/diary-ing, as well as quantitative surveys and venue sampling. AccessMatters recognizes the mission driven impact of focusing resources on research and evaluation– programs and services are evidenced-based and our priority setting and decision making are data driven.

Our Partners.


We work with a broad range of collaborators from such esteemed institutions as:
University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing; University of Connecticut; Centers for Disease Control; Johns Hopkins University; and Adagio Health, to name just a few.

Funders including the CDC and the PA Department of Health have utilized AccessMatters’ evaluation expertise because of our history and reputation for conducting external, independent evaluation.
