What we are doing
Working with publicly available databases, research studies and program data to understand how family planning and immunization services are planned, implemented and monitored in Pakistan. Our aim was to engage with all stakeholders to make these analyses available to them and even work with them to answer specific questions when possible.
Our work with stakeholders also included efforts to build Institutional Capacity for sustained Evidence Use in making policy and program decisions beyond this grant initiative. During this grant we worked closely with the Punjab Policy and Strategic Planning Unit (PSPU) and the Knowledge Management Unit (Health Department Punjab).
