Since 2008, USAID’s Child Survival and Health Grants Program (CSHGP) has supported 30 operations research projects implemented by 19 international NGOs, in partnership with academia, ministries of health, and other local partners in 23 countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Benin, Burundi, Cambodia, East Timor, Ecuador, Ghana, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Nepal, Nicaragua, Niger, Pakistan, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Southern Sudan, and Zambia). The projects are implementing and testing innovative approaches to overcoming persistent challenges to maternal, neonatal, and child health.

The Evidence Project is providing technical support to CSHGP grantees to strengthen their reporting on the implementation process and their writing and dissemination of products that include final reports and interim and final research briefs. The Evidence Project has also developed a range of capacity-building tools to support current and future CSHGP grantees in the drafting of research briefs and the preparation of final reports.
