1) Objective

Focused on investments to transform service design and delivery and to strengthen the development and implementation of equitable and sustainable movements, ANSRHRA is a new initiative to support gender-transformative implementation research in sub-Saharan Africa. It will contribute to improved sexual and reproductive health and realization of rights while also building systems and structures that enable and support under-served populations, including women and girls, to demand and benefit from the full spectrum of SRHR.

The initiative’s overall aim is to support greater realization of neglected SRHR by under-served populations, including women and girls, in sub-Saharan Africa.

2) Eligibility

This initiative will build on the capacity of researchers and research organizations, civil society organizations, as well as policymakers, decision-makers and communities, to integrate gender-transformative approaches within implementation research.

3) Location

Proposals must target, and be grounded in, GPE partner countries in sub-Saharan Africa.

4) Budget

Supported by Canada’s IDRC and other funding partners, the total anticipated amount available for the ANSRHRA initiative is CAD29.9 million, enough to fund up to 16 implementation research projects in total over two rounds of funding and two Health Policy Research Organizations (HPROs). One HPRO will be based in West and Central Africa, and another will be based in East and Southern Africa.

5) Application

This anticipatory funding opportunity will involve a two-stage process. In the first stage, interested applicants will be required to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI). LOIs will be due on May 13, 2024, with up to 15 successful teams being invited to submit full proposals in October 2024. The launch of the ANSRHRA initiative is anticipated to be in January 2025.
