GAGE Bangladesh: overview

Authors

GAGE consortium

GAGE has three distinct work steams in Bangladesh with research cohorts that comprise vulnerable adolescents, including refugees, married girls, adolescents with disabilities and out-of-school adolescents, as well as their caregivers, teachers, and other community members. First, we are following a cohort of adolescents in slum and low-income settlements in Dhaka to explore multidimensional urban poverty and its implications on adolescent capabilities. Second, GAGE is partnering with Yale University and the World Bank to conduct longitudinal mixed methods research with Rohingya refugee and host community adolescents through the Cox’s Bazar Panel Survey (CBPS). Third, GAGE is working with the Government of Bangladesh and the World Bank to evaluate, through a randomized control trial, different school interventions in Chittagong and Sylhet Divisons aimed at improving adolescent well-being.

Specifically, GAGE will be evaluating the impact of the Adolescent School Program, a program from the Ministry of Education, interventions from the School-Based Adolescent Health Program, a program from the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, and researcher led low-cost interventions focused on girls’ empowerment and education.

In Bangladesh, GAGE’s work is carried out in partnership with Innovations for Poverty Action Bangladesh, the BRAC University Institute of Governance and Development, the BRAC James P. Grant School of Public Health and a group of researchers from the University of Chittagong.
