We conduct research in countries and regions with persistently high birth rates and constrained access to contraceptive methods. We work to produce reliable information for population policy decision-making including on barriers to fertility regulation, ease of access to contraception, safe motherhood including misoprostol for the prevention of PPH, and the management and financing of reproductive health in resource scarce regions. The Bixby Center also has special projects that address complex multi-factorial population issues and development challenges.
The Bixby Center conducts operations research to establish the feasibility, safety and efficacy of maternal health and family planning interventions. We provide research design, training, monitoring, report writing and data analysis for joint projects. Operations research helps demonstrate the feasibility and reach of reproductive and maternal health interventions and assists ministries of health in policy making.
