Bihar, India: Measurement Learning and Evaluation for the Family Health Initiative

2010-2016
Prepared For

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

In 2010, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation launched the Family Health Initiative (now called Ananya) in Bihar, India.

The program seeks to reduce maternal, neonatal, and child mortality; malnutrition; fertility; and morbidity from infectious diseases by developing and implementing innovative, integrated health solutions that involve both the public and private sectors. To achieve these goals, the foundation is addressing both supply- and demand-side barriers to improving family health in Bihar. Through a set of six complementary grants, the program seeks to increase the coverage and quality of family health interventions in the state. The program will be implemented in eight focal districts by 2012-2013 and scaled up to the rest of Bihar by 2015.
