We are evaluating a preliminary timeline for the first gender data gap challenge which is in the domain of mental health.

In this data challenge, teams will be tasked with collecting diverse data on how women experience depression and the context around this experience. If we sent 15 to 20 teams (consisting of anywhere between one to four people) to collect data on women’s experiences, socio political determinants, and the contexts in which they experience depression across a range of rural or urban settings globally, how much time would be sufficient for all teams to collect both qualitative and quantitative data addressing these areas? Keep in mind the collected data would include standard survey responses and qualitative data, such as interviews.

    ...please stop using 'suffer'
    Your IRB time is too short for most LMIC.
    Data collection time frame is dependent on being able to arrange interviews, travel to them, conduct them, travel back. Qualitative research is not like quantitative research - interviewers need time between interviews to write notes, memos and code data as those data inform the next interviews.

    Just like @mhackett I'd like to stress that quantitative research takes a lot of time to be done right.
