New Request for Proposals on Improving Maternal Health Measurement

Posted on

By: Staff, Maternal Health Task Force

The Women and Health Initiative (W&HI) at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health is pleased to announce a request for proposals to fund research aimed at testing and validating key maternal health indicators that are not routinely collected and reported at national and global levels. The validation research will focus on core metrics prioritized through the global Ending Preventable Maternal Mortality indicator development work conducted from 2015-2017. These indicators form the basis of a comprehensive monitoring framework for tracking progress toward achieving the strategic objectives outlined in the 2015 report, “Strategies toward Ending Preventable Maternal Mortality.”

W&HI will issue three grants of up to $275,000 USD over 22 months, one each in the regions of Asia, Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean to support the direct costs of conducting such research. Qualified applicants should prepare a proposal narrative, proposal budget and summary of qualifications.
