Subject: Update: TRAction Issues RFA for Recognition of Maternal and/or
Neonatal Complications

Dear Colleagues,

Please note the clarification that this RFA focuses on maternal and/or
neonatal complications.
Please help us to circulate this request for applications around issues
relating to the recognition of maternal and/or neonatal complications at the
community and household level, especially to partners in research
institutions and low-middle income countries.  You can find more information
at the link below.


TRAction Issues RFA for Recognition of Maternal and/or Neonatal

RFA #:  MNCH2013-002
Posted:  July 31, 2013
Questions Due:  August 23, 2013
Applications Due: September 27, 2013

The Translating Research into Action (TRAction) Project has issued a Request
for Applications (RFA) to document community-oriented efforts aimed at
improving recognition of and appropriate care-seeking for perceived maternal
and/or newborn complications. TRAction will fund the development of
descriptive mixed method case studies that explore the implementation of
these interventions. For the purpose of this proposal, a descriptive case
study should answer the “how” and “why” questions around how changes are
achieved (or not achieved) in a particular context, using a mixed-methods
approach. These case studies will include an assessment of the obstacles,
opportunities, and enabling factors that influenced the intervention,
including secondary data analyses.  The case studies will be shared with
national, regional and global decision-makers, program implementers,
researchers, and stakeholders to improve recognition and appropriate care
seeking interventions.

Applicants must be program implementers working in the field of RMNCH or
research institutions working in partnership with program implementers who
are currently implementing or recently completed an intervention or program
to improve recognition of and care seeking for maternal and newborn
complications in a LMIC (see full RFA for list of eligible countries).
Projects or research studies with both successful and unsuccessful
approaches are encouraged to apply.   The application includes a brief
description of the intervention and the strategy used to implement it,
results and availability of evidence/data sources as well as and future
plans for scale-up. TRAction anticipates making 2-4 awards of approximately
USD 100,000 - 125,000 each.

Applications should be submitted to
tracapply@urc-chs.com<mailto:tracapply@urc-chs.com> by Monday, September 27,
