We are excited to announce the launch of J-PAL 350x, a free, innovative online course that explores the fundamentals of field-based health research through immersive, documentary-style learning. Travel with our team to ongoing randomized evaluations in India and Kenya to see firsthand how rigorous health research is conducted in low-resource settings. Through a series of integrated modules, participants will learn how to measure individual and population health, select health indicators and measurement tools, and design surveys, as well as explore practical issues related to safety, hygiene, and ethics. J-PAL 350x is designed for those who are new to health research and health-focused development practitioners around the world.
