This grant will support the Population Council’s Poverty, Gender, and Youth (PGY) Program to conduct multisectoral intervention research that examines links between adolescent girls’ and young women’s productive and reproductive lives in low- and middle-income countries. PGY researchers in New York and the council’s country offices will apply a gender lens to investigate the enablers and barriers to adolescent girls’ and young women’s well-being; develop tools and processes to facilitate evidence user engagement, including country-level policymakers; and explore the gendered implications of COVID-19 for adolescent girls and young women in the areas of reproductive health and rights, the care economy, and sustainable livelihoods.
