OUR WORK AND IMPACT
Agency for All
Agency for All is a five-year (2022-2027) USAID-funded project that will generate evidence on the role of agency in effective social and behavior change programming to improve health and well-being for individuals and communities. Our work will advance cross-sector development outcomes including family planning and reproductive health, maternal, newborn and child health, nutrition, infectious disease, and HIV/AIDS. As part of our overall approach, we will develop culturally relevant constructs of agency, strengthen evidence on approaches to foster empowerment, prioritize local voices, and increase the agency of partners across our consortium ecosystem to generate and utilize evidence.
Agency for All is committed to advancing principles of inclusion and participation in locally-led research, monitoring, and evaluation. We center local leadership through Hubs in East Africa, West Africa, and South Asia, developing a network of implementing organizations, researchers, community representatives and other stakeholders with expertise and an interest in increasing individual and community agency to improve health.
The Center on Gender Equity and Health (GEH) at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) has assembled a diverse and highly experienced consortium of global, regional and country leaders in both implementation and research. Partners share a dedication to advancing social and behavior change, led by local priorities and voices: Centre for Catalyzing Change, CORE Group, Equimundo, EVIHDAF, International Planned Parenthood Federation, Makerere University, Matchboxology, Sambodhi, Save the Children, Shujaaz, Inc., University of Witswatersand, and Viamo.
