The MEASURE Evaluation–Tanzania Small Grants Program: Building Capacity and Informing HIV/AIDS Programs Abstract:

Small grants are one mechanism to promote research capacity and provide financial support for health research conducted in low-income countries. When host country teams research issues, develop strategies, and implement solutions, those actions promote sustainability, a goal championed by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

MEASURE Evaluation–Tanzania (MEval-TZ), funded by USAID, administered small grants to local universities and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in Tanzania to contribute to Result 3 of the project: an increased evidence base for community health and social service programs through conducting research and building research capacity. This brief provides an overview of the small grants program.
