We have a range of capacites and skills working at TARSC or in TARSC programmes, including public health and epidemiology, biomedical, health policy, medical sciences, participatory and formal research skills, statistics, savings methodologies, social science, material development, information scienes, accounting and computing. We co-operate with institutions that provide IT, economics, legal, labour relations and other relevant skills. We promote networking nationally and regionally to build interdisciplinary approaches to community issues.

We believe in building capacities of working people – those working at TARSC and those we work with.

TARSC has areas of particular strength and experience, such as in research methods, including participatory methods, in surveillance, monitoring and evaluation, in policy analysis, in public health, health financing and health systems research and training and in organisational development. We work with a network of people who bring high levels of expertise to specific areas of work.
