The APPHC Partnership, established in 2019, is led by two USAID implementation research projects – Breakthrough RESEARCH and the Health Evaluation and Applied Research Development (HEARD) Project – in collaboration with USAID missions and their respective country-level bilateral projects ACCESS (Madagascar) and ONSE (Malawi).

Breakthrough RESEARCH and HEARD co-manage the Partnership. Breakthrough RESEARCH leverages their expertise in innovative approaches to synthesize and generate evidence to inform social and behavior change programming and design, while HEARD’s role as the research systems integrator facilitates the partnerships necessary to accelerate evidence-to-use cycles.
