Country programmes are driven by specific geographical contexts, aiming to help generate the critical mass of evidence needed to shift policies and investments at a local level.
With broad research topics, the capacity development and research uptake activities will instead be highly targeted towards specific countries.
These projects will utilise links with other organisations and programmes already working in the space that complement EEG and provide vehicles for uptake.
Initial country programmes are Sierra Leone and Ethiopia. Once these programmes are established, the programme will expand to new countries. Further programmes could take place in Bangladesh and Nepal.
