Introducing Operations Research to Large-Scale Program Implementation in Ethiopia
This technical update describes how the USAID-funded Integrated Family Health Program (IFHP) helped build capacity of health program managers and implementers to conduct operations research, with the ultimate goal of strengthening systems and fostering innovation based on systematic learning. Capacity building was achieved through a skills training initiative designed by IFHP and Addis Ababa University’s School of Public Health which convened Regional Health Bureau (RHB) and IFHP staff from across four regions of Ethiopia. As a result of the training IFHP has initiated staff-led research studies whose findings will inform future implementation.
Reflecting on the last five years of implementation, this technical brief shares how Pathfinder's IFHP has mobilized drivers for systems strengthening by prioritizing community needs and facilitating informed decision making.
