We gather data through conducting online surveys.
A few select recent or key projects that used online surveys include:
Achieving Condom Empowerment (ACE)-Plus, Cicatelli Associates Inc./Office of Population Affairs (formerly the Office of Adolescent Health)
Cicatelli Associates Inc. has been awarded a five year grant from the Office for Adolescent Health to test the effectiveness of Achieving Condom Empowerment (ACE)-Plus, an intervention designed to increase correct and consistent condom use among young males in foster care settings in New York City to help prevent teen pregnancy and improve adolescent health. Philliber is evaluating the implementation and impacts of the program using a random assignment design.
Bedsider, The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy (now Power to Decide)
Bedsider is an on-line and mobile device system to educate about and support use of birth control and STI protection, developed by The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. Philliber and the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) worked together to evaluate the use of this tool at a pilot launch in three clinics in Florida.
Digital Path to Entrepreneurship and Innovation for Latin America, International Center for Journalists

Six cohorts of Latin American professional fellows from Brazil, Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua came to the U.S. for a five-week program. Their U.S. counterparts traveled to a WHA country for a two-week cultural exchange experience. This project was funded by the State Department Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
IN•clued: Inclusive Healthcare—Youth and Providers Empowered, Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and Hawaiian Islands/Office of Population Affairs (formerly the Office of Adolescent Health)
Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands (PPGNHI) is implementing and evaluating IN•clued: Inclusive Healthcare—Youth and Providers Empowered, an innovative approach designed specifically for LGBTQ youth to reduce pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections. This project is a randomized control trial reaching approximately 1,800 youth and 300 healthcare professionals in 12 communities over five years. IN•clued is delivered by trained peer educators and includes two components: (1) a three-hour workshop for health care staff and providers that addresses best practices for working with LGBTQ youth, as well as hands-on practice in mock teen-patient interviews; and 2) a 3-hour interactive workshop for LGBTQ youth that includes education related to sexual risk prevention and healthy relationships, and information about how to access sexual health services.
Maine Family Planning, Anonymous funder and the Family Planning Association of Maine
The Maine Family Planning project documented the implementation of primary care services in a family planning clinic in rural Maine and subsequent changes in patient and clinic-level variables as the clinic moved toward certification as a patient-centered medical home. The evaluation was a quasi-experimental design using two family planning clinics with no primary care that served as comparisons to family planning clinics with primary care. The research drew on both quantitative and qualitative data from a patient surveys, staff and administrator interviews, and clinic financial reports, as well as extensive gleaning of clinical and billing data directly from the electronic medical record system. A related case study on the process of transforming a family planning clinic into a level three patient centered medical home was completed in summer 2016.
New Silk Road: Multimedia Training Program, International Center for Journalists
Philliber evaluated the Roadblocks along the New Silk Road: Multimedia Training Program which recruited and trained journalists from eight South Asian countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives) to participate in joint reporting projects to produce multimedia stories about regional issues affecting youth, women, and migrants. Recipients received six weeks online training and the most promising journalists were brought together for additional training and mentoring.

Services were delivered by a coalition of six Planned Parenthood affiliates in Montana, Oregon, Idaho, Washington, and Alaska at over 50 sites. This project was evaluated using a random assignment design wherein students are assigned to receive TOP or a benign alternative program called Community Voices. Philliber developed a system of evaluation which includes managing and conducting surveys across all sites, analyzing data, and ensuring fidelity.
