Small Grants – Family Planning Research
Measure Evaluation invites applications for Small Grants to Support Research in Family Planning
The MEASURE Evaluation project is pleased to announce a request for applications for its small grants program to increase the evidence base in routine health information systems (RHIS) in family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH). The three primary objectives of this program are:
To build research capacity among local agencies;
To address research gaps in routine health information for FP/RH to inform policy and programmatic decision-making; and
To increase use of research findings by providing an opportunity for the data to be disseminated to and used by local stakeholders.
The small grants are intended to support primary and secondary data analysis – especially national and sub-national program or policy evaluation. The overall goal is to use the research findings to improve RHIS and advance FP outcomes. Small grant recipients are expected to produce a publishable manuscript and complete a data use activity.
