In 2013 Brooke initiated the Voices from Women research project to explore the role of working horses, mules and donkeys in supporting the lives of women from the perspectives of the women themselves.
The Brooke Pakistan programme has established a dedicated research resource to work on topics relating to service provision and community engagement, clinical issues and policy-related topics. The team aims to share details of their work at national and international level.
