JSI Research & Training Institute

For Support Of Testing Behavioral Interventions In Family Planning Programs

Overview
The grant will support JSI Research & Training Institute to test interventions aimed at improving the continuation rates of injectable contraception in Ethiopia. The Institute will collaborate with ideas42 (a Hewlett grantee) to draw on behavioral economics to design more effective services, and use a randomized-control trial to test whether these new designs help more women continue with their chosen method of contraception. The interventions will be piloted as part of the Last Ten Kilometers project, which provides reproductive, maternal, and child health services in four regions that are home to 80 percent of Ethiopia’s population, with support from the Gates Foundation, USAID, and UNICEF.

Grants to this Grantee
for support to host the Human-Centered Design Exchange  
This grant to JSI Research & Training Institute will support the HCD Exchange, an effort to promote the use of human-centered design (HCD) in adolescent sexual and reproductive health (ASRH). Co-funded with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, the HCD Exchange aims to improve ASRH outcomes through increased use of HCD methods and principles that center on the aspirations of youth, as well as to expand the field of HCD in ASRH to more organizations, funders, designers, and evaluators. During this grant, JSI will establish a secretariat, expand the existing community of practice, and fund key learning and evidence to fill high-priority gaps in the field.
