RFA No. MNCH2010-004 Implementation Research Project: Tackling Disrespect and Abuse in Facility-Based Childbirth
5 OCTOBER 2010 - The purpose of this solicitation is to fund implementation research that will document disrespect and abuse and develop and test an intervention approach to significantly reduce the leading manifestations of disrespect and abuse of women during labor and delivery in facilities in developing countries with high burdens of maternal mortality. The intervention approach developed should be designed to have a significant impact on disrespectful and abusive care and, once tested, be replicated quickly, inexpensively and widely in the country and in other countries facing similar challenges.
