What We Do

  • Develop new and innovative solutions that can be effectively applied to improve decision making about use and continuation of modern contraception and to gain insights on fertility preferences, method-specific perspectives, the role of men and masculinity, gender, and household dynamics
  • Increase evidence and programmatic understanding on how and when to apply cost-effective cross-disciplinary levers and approaches to test new solutions and improve existing interventions to increase the modern contraceptive prevalence rate
  • Increase uptake of effective ways to apply cross-disciplinary approaches in designing, implementing, and monitoring interventions to better address reasons for non use
  • Bring together the consortium of partners—ideas42, Camber Collective, and International Center for Research on Women—to deliver real, lasting change
