UNC receives record $181 million grant to evaluate health, poverty and gender programs worldwide
Date:9/8/2008

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has awarded the Carolina Population Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill up to $181 million to continue its MEASURE Evaluation project.

The award is the largest ever received by UNC.

The award funds the monitoring and evaluation of family planning, maternal and child health, nutrition and HIV/AIDS programs around the world. The project also monitors and evaluates malaria, tuberculosis and avian influenza programs, and will expand to programs addressing poverty and gender equity.

Going into its third phase, MEASURE Evaluation builds on the previous two phases of the project and the earlier EVALUATION project which began in 1991. The project already has a presence in nearly 50 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America and will expand to more. Besides the $181 million of project funding in this grant, the award includes the potential for countries to request evaluation activities valued at up to an additional $125 million over the five years.

"The size of this award is unprecedented," said Barbara Entwisle, Ph.D., director of the Carolina Population Center (CPC) and Kenan Professor of Sociology in the UNC College of Arts and Sciences. "Faculty at UNC, specifically those at the Carolina Population Center who are part of the MEASURE Evaluation team, have achieved an international reputation for excellence in evaluation research.

The funding of this latest stage of the project acknowledges the great success of the MEASURE Evaluation team in its earlier phases."

Sian Curtis, Ph.D., research associate professor of maternal and child health in the School of Public Health and a CPC fellow, is principal investigator and project director. Gustavo Angeles, Ph.D., assistant professor of maternal and child health in the School of Public Health and CPC fellow, is co-principal investigator and deputy director.
