Grants to this Grantee
for enhancing the African Population and Health Research Center impact evaluation capacity  
The African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) is committed to generating Africa-led and African-owned evidence to inform decision making. The center’s mandate is to generate and support the use of evidence for meaningful action to improve the lives of all Africans. This grant will enable APHRC to strengthen its capacity to conduct impact evaluations across several sectors, such as education, nutrition, and health.
for support of research on quality of post-abortion care services  
This grant is a supplement to a current grant to the African Population and Health Research Center to conduct research on post-abortion care services, which are legal in most countries and provide essential treatment for complications from unsafe abortions. Due to unforeseen challenges, the grantee has struggled to collect sufficient data in two of its three countries of study, Nigeria and Burkina Faso, resulting in insufficient numbers to achieve significant findings. This supplement will allow them to commission further data collection and conduct additional oversight.
