African Population and Health Research Center

For General Operating Support

Overview
This general operating support to the African Population and Health Research Center will enable the Center to ensure that health and education policies and practices in sub-Saharan Africa are informed by robust scientific evidence. As a pan-African research organization, the Center generates and synthesizes knowledge on education, health systems, population dynamics, aging, and urbanization. The Center also engages with policymakers and other key audiences at the local, national, and regional levels to make sure the evidence is understood and used to guide policy formulation and action. A separate grant on this docket provides dedicated funding support to the Center’s Policy Engagement and Communications department.

for support of the Care Work and the Economy Africa project  
This grant will support the Care Work and the Economy Africa project to generate and foster the use of evidence and gender-aware macroeconomic tools that contribute to increased public investment in care provisioning and infrastructures for young children and older adults. The African Population and Health Research Center and a team of global and regional partners will assess the economic and social impacts of existing care arrangements in Kenya and Senegal and develop innovative tools to inform national economic policies and budgets. The team will support regional partners in using new evidence to influence governments’ post-COVID-19 policies to address the demand for unpaid care work and support women’s economic agency.
