Background and Objective: The Institute for Reproductive Health at Georgetown University (IRH) seeks a Project Coordinator for its recently launched 5-year Passages Project, a research, intervention and technical assistance project focused on transforming social norms for sexual and reproductive health. Firmly based in social science theory on social norms and implementation science approaches that consider real-world programmatic experience, Passages will bridge the gap between science and effective policy and practice through activities in three work streams: 1. Research work stream: establish evidence base on scalable social norm change intervention pilots and replication studies. 2. Practice work stream: assess and provide technical assistance and catalytic support for scaling social norm change interventions. 3. Global leadership work stream: advance knowledge dissemination and utilization of social norm change interventions. Applying implementation science principles, IRH alongside partners, FHI360, JHSPH (GEAS), PSI, Save the Children and Tearfund aim to explain what makes interventions effective in real world contexts; address socially complex issues including gender inequality, stigma and violence related to family planning (FP), healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies (HTSP), and sexual and reproductive health (SRH), and focus on scalability, considering cost, complexity, and adaptability. In doing so, the Passages project aim is to increase use of modern FP and improve healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies by youth and first-time parents. By the end of this project, Passages will have: 1) established a body of rigorous evidence on scalable interventions and social norm mechanisms to support positive SRH/FP outcomes; 2) assessed interventions and built local capacity to plan and implement scale-up; and 3) advanced knowledge and increased utilization of evidence.
