Research and Advocacy have been intertwined in the APMAS organizational structure since inception. Research serves as a tool to identify issues for advocacy. The research team primarily conducts in-depth research studies on various aspects of the self-help movement. The results of the studies shape the work of APMAS in the field, particularly in the areas of Quality Enhancement and Livelihood Promotion. The research findings are widely disseminated to all stakeholders - government agencies, NGOs, bankers, researchers, academicians, etc. Main instruments of dissemination are: publications, website, and newsletter - Mahila Sadhikarata in Telugu (the AP state language). APMAS hosts policy dialogue and also actively participates in such dialogue organized by other institutions at the national and state level.
