Urban Health Research Program

Developing new models of sub-Saharan African urban primary health care including preventative and curative strategies to improve MNCH outcomes for vulnerable women and children

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is issuing an Addendum to the 2018 Global Health BAA for Research and Development (GLOBALHEALTH-BAA-2018) entitled the Urban Health Research Program. The purpose of this Addendum is to request Expressions of Interest (EOI) for implementation research to test solutions to address the growing challenges of rapid urbanization and its impact on maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH) outcomes. This Addendum serves to commence the co-design process around innovative solutions for accelerating gains in MNCH in poor urban settings of sub-Saharan Africa using an iterative approach e.g. implementation research nested in existing programs, interventions or health systems.
Submission dates:
– Questions about this BAA Addendum are due Wednesday, December 19, 2018 at 5pm EST
