The Strive Health team completed 46 key informant interviews, 4 first voice focus groups, 3 online surveys,  reviewed over 150 related documents and analyzed secondary data sets. Interviews and focus groups were recorded (with permission), transcribed and analyzed using NVivo. All data were synthesized into an executive summary, comprehensive results report, methods document and companion presentation. The project was completed on-time and within budget.
