Routes2Results is a non-profit, social and public health organisation and collective. We aim to improve public health through partnered, collaborative research; building and adding to the current knowledge and understanding by bridging the gap between people and science.

We are a registered charity - Charity Number 1166905.

Our Mission

To promote and protect good health through collaborative research, and the employment of a human-centred approach to developing scientific knowledge.

We're bridging the gap between people and science, whilst informing, educating and expanding collective scientific and public health knowledge.

We look to

Provide public health research; adding to the collective knowledge and understanding of public health areas of study, expertise and public health programme implementation in developing countries such as: HIV/Aids, malaria, vaccines, enteric diseases, child and maternal health and infant mortality and sexual health and reproductive rights.

Advance education and inform the public health community including community groups, advocacy organisations, implementing groups, funder organisations, governments, universities and the general public via research which uses rigorous and modern behavioural and market research techniques through: seminars, partaking in conferences and lectures, the publication of work and journal articles.

Who We Are

Routes2Results is headed up by Moushira El-Sahn and Jeff Lucas, implementing the mission and our work.

Moushira and Jeff have been working closely since their work on a study on Oral Rehydration Sachets (ORS) in India. They led research on Multipurpose Prevention Technologies (MPTs) across Nigeria, Uganda and South Africa, where they designed, briefed in-country teams, analysed and presented the research.

Moushira and Jeff sit on the Network of Experts (NOE) as part of the Scientific Agenda Working Group (SAWG). The SAWG is part of a wider group known as the Initiative for MPTs (IMPT) - The IMPT is an international collaboration of product developers, researchers, health care providers, policymakers, epidemiologists, advocates and supporting agencies committed to safely and swiftly bringing new MPTs to market, part of CAMI Health.
