ICRW provided technical support to the Indian NGO MAMTA Health Institute for Mother and Child in the evaluation of its program to strengthen youth friendly health services in two districts of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. ICRW worked closely with MAMTA’s evaluation team in designing the research tools (baseline and endline survey questionnaires), developing a sampling framework, analyzing the data and synthesizing the findings. ICRW also provided technical support to the organization in conducting a Rapid Program Review of Government schemes implemented across both states and India as a whole in delaying the age at marriage. These efforts by MAMTA were part of a broader initiative funded by the European Union to prevent early marriage and early pregnancy among adolescent girls in India as well as in Nepal and Bangladesh.
