Grant for Task Shifting for Improvement of Maternal, Newborn and Child Health Services


The Translating Research into Action Project (TRAction), funded by the US Agency for International Development, has released a request for applications (RFA) for research to identify and address the barriers and challenges to scaling-up task shifting approaches to expand access and utilization of essential maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH) services.

MNCH policy makers, planners and managers of services in low income countries need information on effective methods to determine the need for, plan, design, implement, evaluate and scale-up task shifting efforts to improve the availability of human resources for MNCH - particularly in hard to reach geographical areas and in communities with low social and economic status. It is the TRAction's intention that the results of the research will help optimize task shifting programs in the research country, and also provide lessons for other countries facing similar programmatic issues. Applications are due March 14, 2012. [adapted from RFA announcement]
