Evidence for action: Approaches to advance gender equity from around the globe

2020 Call for proposals
E4A awards grants to encourage and support innovative, rigorous research on the impact of programs, policies, and practices on health and well-being, with a particular focus on research that will help advance health equity

For many of us, our prospects for good health can be limited by virtue of our gender.  

Despite tremendous progress toward gender equity in the United States, bias and discrimination, harmful social norms, and practices and policies at all levels have created deep-rooted barriers to good health for women, girls, and other groups marginalized based on gender or sexual identity, and hold back society as a whole.

Across the globe, nations and communities are finding ways to ensure everybody has a fair and just opportunity to live their healthiest life possible regardless of gender. From pay equity, to improved workplace conditions, reduced gender-based violence, and more, we have much to learn from the world.

Through this special call for proposals (CFP), the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Evidence for Action (E4A) program and Global Ideas for U.S. Solutions team seek to learn from programs, policies, and practices that are advancing gender equity around the world to understand how they can be adapted to improve health and well-being in the United States, and build a national Culture of Health.

Application Deadline: August 26, 2020, 3:00 p.m. ET
