Announcement

The United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Health Evaluation and Applied Research Development (HEARD) Project is seeking a partner institution(s) to provide implementation science support to governments and their interagency partners in countries that have carried out a Violence Against Children and Youth Survey (VACS) or a similar nationally representative survey measuring prevalence of violence against children. The implementation science support can include process documentation, including through case studies; information curating and dissemination; and technical capacity development required to implement, strengthen, and/or scale priority interventions identified within national strategies for preventing and ultimately ending violence against children. Priority interventions typically fall within one of seven strategies within the INSPIRE framework. 

The purpose of Phase I of this RFA is to solicit Concept Notes and relevant qualifications from potential partners who are prepared to engage in this work. Applicants whose Concept Notes are selected will be invited to Phase II to submit full proposals to implement the activities put forth in the Concept Notes.
