Funding Small-Scale Research Projects in Reproductive Health in Pakistan
This project provides funding for small-scale sexual and reproductive health (SRH) research projects in Pakistan, where there has been little emphasis on research and evidence-based decision making. This joint program, implemented through a Reproductive Health Research Working Group and organized by the Population Council, will also have the dual aim of building the capacity of junior RH researchers, in addition to filling the gaps in existing knowledge in the priority areas of RH. The grant will enable collaboration between more experienced and established researchers who will act as mentors to junior researchers.
