Description: The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) plans to invest in a five-year cooperative agreement of up to $21.8 million. The purpose of the activity is to conduct implementation science research for development, testing and refinement of new and improved approaches, interventions and policies in Bangladesh for improved delivery of multi-sectoral nutrition services in high stunting areas in the Feed the Future (FTF) Zone. Specifically, USAID is seeking assistance on research areas which are unlikely to advance without USAID technical leadership and investment. The primary objective of this award is to conduct a small number of multi-year mixed method research studies that may be experimental in design, or using non-experimental methods, related primarily to advancing implementation of nutrition programs for adolescents, pregnant and lactating women and children under the age of two.
