Refugee and displaced populations, and the vulnerable communities with whom they share space, are at high risk for acquiring COVID-19 because their living conditions make it impossible to practice physical distancing and isolation or to access quality healthcare.
The overall objective of this project is to promote the uptake of research findings from the cohort of projects “Combatting sexual and gender-based violence and improving adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights in West Africa”.
Heartwater and contagious caprine pleuropneumonia (CCCP) are two diseases that constitute major threats to small ruminant (grazing animals such as goats and sheep) production in developing countries, notably in Africa.
This project will develop a concise set of guidelines and tools for priority setting, and apply them to two different resource allocation problems, the one focusing on equitable redistribution of health services toward the most vulnerable in Namibia, and the other on the sustainability of the Aarogyasri Health Insurance Scheme for the poor in Andhra Pradesh, India.
IDRC is investing in generating evidence to combat sexual and gender-based violence and improve adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights in West Africa. Three new projects in Côte d’Ivoire and Niger, in addition to existing projects in Burkina Faso and Togo, bring this investment to more than CA$3 million.
