Rural Study Series

The Rural Study Series is a modest venture for dissemination of BRAC research studies concerned with various aspects of rural development in Bangladesh. Poverty alleviation and empowerment of the poor, particularly of the disadvantaged women are the two major goals of BRAC. The Research and Evaluation Division (RED), instituted in 1975, is an independent unit within BRAC and it plays a vital role in planning, strategy formulation, monitoring and evaluation of BRAC’s development interventions. The Rural Study Series emphasizes policy relevance and operational features of BRAC’s programs at grassroots level, rather than theoretical and rigid methodological issues. BRAC, in previous years, published several monographs on development issues. This series covers selected research studies, which have been carried out since 1990. The study compiles the following case studies- Rural Women in Poverty Alleviation: Six Case Studies, Continuation of Education of BRAC’s Non-Formal Primary School Graduates in Formal Schools, Evaluation of Community Participation in a Maternal and Child Health Program Setting in Rural Bangladesh, and Antenatal Care Service Coverage Through Village Based Centres: A Close Observation.
