Case Report Form (CFR) WG


Global WACh Working Groups provide a space to bring faculty, students and professionals together to share ideas, projects, and build collaborations aimed at improving the global health of women, adolescents, and children.

Case Report Form (CFR) Working Group

This working group aims to create a high-quality repository of CRFs available to Global WACh members and collaborators to accelerate study implementation. The working group is standardizing frequently-used study questions so that inter-study comparisons will be feasible, via standardized variable names and coding dictionaries.

In addition, external review of CRFs by the Family Planning Working Group, the CFAR Sociobehavioral and Prevention Core and the Kenya Research Program will refine CRFs and facilitate dissemination. The current list of standardized CRFs includes:

  • sociodemographics
  • obstetric history
  • contraception
  • family planning
  • sexual health
  • sexual behavior
  • medical history
  • pregnancy exam
  • postpartum health
  • physical exam
  • neonatal exam
  • infant follow-up
  • mother and infant treatment
