Supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Program on Global Health & Human Rights at the USC Institute for Global Health facilitated implementation of human rights based approaches as part of a 2013 multi-country implemented by Concern Worldwide. The project aimed to accelerate discovery and testing of creative solutions to understand and overcome barriers that prevent essential health services from reaching women and children in low-income countries. The USC team provided technical advice on how to ensure that human rights could be appropriately incorporated into project implementation, monitoring and evaluation.
