Research Techniques

Qualitative - Focus Groups (FGs) - Side Effects - Value proposition - R2R Behavioural Economics Quickfires- Human-Centred Design (HCD) - Consumer Target product Profile (CTTP) creation and testing - Quantitative - Forecast


Understand women's and partners' contraceptive injection experience (current users, those who have stopped using, naive users). Uncover the appeal and perceived barriers of the DMPA and DMPA-sub cutaneous, Consumer Target Product Profiles (CTPPs). Appreciate the impact and perception of side-effects through human-centred design exercises. Understand willingness to try and impact of attribute comparisons across the discussion through Routes2Results' (R2R) trademarked behavioural economics-based exercise 'Quickfires'. Refine CTPPs post qualitative and quantitative phases. Quantitatively test various profiles, appeal, and forecast likelihood of trial/use and impact on contraceptive market
