This grant will support the Global Health, Youth, and Development and the Women’s Economic Empowerment and Livelihoods portfolios at the International Center for Research on Women to undertake and disseminate research on the relationship between reproductive health and women’s economic empowerment. The center is planning to contribute to the evidence base on the relationship by (a) developing a framework on how various pathways to economic empowerment improve reproductive health and vice versa; (b) conducting research to elucidate these pathways and evaluating existing interventions; and (c) analyzing available data sets. The research will be compiled in an edited journal or policy volume and disseminated widely.
