Maternal and Child Health Sustainable Technical Assistance and Research Initiative (MCH-STAR)
The overall goal of the MCH-STAR project is to improve maternal, neonatal, and child health and nutrition in India among poor and underserved populations. MCH-STAR aims to leave a legacy of sustainable Indian institutions able to lead the implementation and execution of programs that address priority health and development issues and guided by appropriate policies.
In a consortium led by the Cardno Group, the Center for Global Health & Development at Boston University is providing technical expertise, capacity strengthening, and mentoring in research and project evaluation to three Indian institutions: India Clinical Epidemiology Network (IndiaCLEN), the Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI), and the Population Foundation of India (PFI).
MCH-STAR is implemented under the TASC3 Project.
