There are many challenges to conducting research in humanitarian settings, but if a sound evidence base for humanitarian public health is to be established, the same standards of methodological and statistical rigour used in other research fields need to be used.

But can methodological adaptation and innovation help conduct this high-quality research, despite the extra difficulties humanitarian health researchers face?

With more than 60 studies now funded through the R2HC, it was time to analyse the methodologies used to see whether there was evidence of adaptation or innovation that could inform the work of others.

This new report looks at how common the adaptation of methods is, how it can be implemented despite constraints, and how often innovative methods are applied.
