Family Planning, Fertility and Urban Development
Deadline to submit concept note: 15 April 2019
Deadline to submit full proposals: 1 July 2019
The International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP) is pleased to announce the second call for policy-relevant research proposals from early career researchers to:
- contribute to the evidence base needed to better meet the family planning (FP) and related reproductive health (RH) needs of the most vulnerable in urban areas of countries of sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, and
- increase the attention paid to FP, fertility and population growth in urban development policy initiatives at local, national and international levels.
The proposal must focus either on a single city, or represent comparative work on multiple urban areas, of any country of sub-Saharan Africa or South Asia. Eligibility will be limited to citizens of countries in sub-Saharan Africa or South Asia currently working in established institutions in those two regions (not necessarily the citizenship country), who have received a Ph.D. (or an MD with some public health or social science training and evidence of research skills) within the past ten years and who are currently affiliated with established institutions in either region.
