Research and Evaluation
All activities planned are evidence based, and we carry out independent evaluations to measure the impact of our own interventions.
Consumption patterns and trends are also observed, analyzed and recorded every year. Evaluation and research data are shared among many organizations.
The Research and Evaluation Division conducts a variety of surveys designed to determine the trends of alcohol and tobacco consumption on selected districts in order to support other programmes of ADIC and to fulfill the information needs of the country. The unit annually evaluates the activities of selected programmes of ADIC and donor funded projects in order to determine the impact and effectiveness of the activities implememnted.

Survey on Tobacco and Alcohol Use
The Research and evaluation Programme of ADIC carry out a trend study on Alcohol and Tobacco in Sri Lanka since 1998.
The programme collaborates with the other community programmes at the baseline, progress and final stages of the survey to create and implement a well-designed, evidence-based evaluation. At each stage of the project new data collection procedures are developed assessing the needs of the project and reports are submitted.
New Studies and public presentations
The programme conducts research projects designed to address social issues concerning alcohol and tobacco. Results of these studies are disseminated nationally and internationally through journals and presentations at local and national workshops.
We provide an opportunity for the under graduates to have an experience on surveys with a comprehensive training given by ADIC.
