PRAGYA: Multisectoral, Gendered Approach to Improve Family Planning and Sexual and Reproductive Health for Young People
PRAGYA, meaning "insight" in Sanskrit, is a mixed methods study commissioned by USAID and conducted by Pathfinder India to improve understanding of the effects of Phases I and II of the PRACHAR project on family planning and sexual and reproductive health outcomes and related gender norms, attitudes and practices. Completed in December 2011, the report summarizes findings and provides recommendations for programs and interventions, policy, and future research.
Right now, communities face two interconnected crises—how to protect their health and the environment they depend on. The problems are complex. And Pathfinder is up to the challenge.
In 2012, HoPE LVB conducted a baseline study to inform project design and determine baseline values for key outcome indicators.
