The AMBIT Project

AMBIT is a 3.5-year research and evaluation project in sub-Saharan Africa supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and implemented by the Boston University School of Public Health in the U.S., the Health Economics and Epidemiology Research Office (HE2RO) in South Africa, and other local partners. The project, launched in September 2018, includes data synthesis, data collection, data analysis, and modeling activities aimed at generating information for near- and long-term decision making and creating an approach and platform for ongoing evaluation. Activities will include literature reviews, analysis of retrospective data and implementation reports, cost estimates, surveys, modeling, and primary data collection and analysis, with an emphasis on Malawi, Zambia, and South Africa.
