Urban Reproductive Health Initiative – New website
The Measurement, Learning & Evaluation (MLE) Project for the Urban Reproductive Health Initiative (URHI) is pleased to announce the launch of its website: www.urbanreproductivehealth.org. Through a rigorous evaluation study design, the MLE project will identify approaches that increase contraceptive prevalence rates in rapidly growing cities in India, Nigeria, Kenya, and Senegal.
The MLE project serves as the technical resource for local efforts to monitor and evaluate URHI programs in these countries and documents evidence-based best practices for health services that target the urban poor. Through the website and other dissemination events, the MLE project plans to share promising approaches with policy makers, program managers, and researchers globally and build local capacity to undertake rigorous measurement and evaluation of population, family planning, and integrated reproductive health activities targeting vulnerable urban populations.
