Research Summaries

At SIRC, we strive to translate research to practice in order to increase the knowledge base and build capacity in our communities.

We understand that academic research, as it is often written, can be hard to understand. Thus, each research summary completes a “translation process” and is carefully developed to use more generally acceptable terms instead of academic language from the original journal articles.
