Sarah’s technical expertise and her in-depth knowledge of reproductive health issues in the region combined to great effect for the review that she undertook for the Population Council on fertility and family planning in West Africa. Sarah was extremely organized in undertaking the review, delivered a high quality product on time, and was a joy to work with; I can unreservedly recommend her for consultancy.

After reading Sarah's work for many years, I was delighted to have the opportunity to collaborate with her on the conceptualization of a qualitative study on risk behaviors among Men who have Sex with Men. Sarah's expertise in qualitative research and her intimate knowledge of SRH/HIV in Mali were a great asset to the study team.

I have known and worked with Sarah since early 1999 when I began working in Mali as the Sahel Field Office Director for Save the Children. Sarah's work was notable for its meticulous design ensuring that the fundamental questions and assumptions were addressed. It was also characterised by the meticulous selection and training of interviewers-ensuring that they had the communication skills to successfully interact with the target population. I was always sad to see our work with Sarah finish and looked forward to the next opportunity to work together.

I first came across Sarah's work while I was working as a human rights adviser for the British Embassy in Dakar. Her research on the international response to child trafficking had an influence on future programming. I admire Sarah's willingness to look afresh and then provide detailed analysis to support her findings.

Sarah Castle is remarkably versatile. We worked together in Côte d'Ivoire. Sarah responds quickly to new demands and challenges, synthesizes large amounts of information into cogent summaries, is equally fluent in two languages, and is very knowledgeable about social development, public health, OVC issues and donor concerns. She serves well as a team-leader as well as part of a larger group. I was impressed by Sarah's hard work and good writing, and by the degree to which she is both culturally and politically sensitive.
