Tufts USAID/ENGINE Program
The Empowering New Generations to Improve Nutrition and Economic Opportunities (ENGINE) Program, is a five year (2011-2016), integrated nutrition program intended to decrease maternal, neonatal and child mortality by improving the nutritional status of women and children less than 5 years through sustainable, comprehensive and coordinated evidence-based interventions in four major regions of Ethiopia. ENGINE is funded by USAID and implemented by Save the Children International with a consortium of partners including Tufts University. The expected results of the ENGINE initiative include the implementation of a rigorous and innovative learning agenda. The Friedman School at Tufts University was tasked with the operational research component, including the generation of rigorous learning outcomes on key questions and innovative policy and operational approaches that will support the successful scale up of programs to improve nutrition in Ethiopia. Tufts University is also partnered with local Ethiopian institutions Jimma University, Hawassa University and the Ethiopian Public Health Institute (EPHI) to carry out this research and learning agenda.
The USAID/ENGINE: Empowering New Generations to Improve Nutrition and Economic opportunities Research Symposium was held in Addis Ababa on June 27th & 28th, 2016. The Symposium brought together research partners including the Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy at Tufts University, Valid International, Jimma University, Hawassa University and the Ethiopian Public Health Institute (EPHI) to publicly present the preliminary findings of the diverse range of research activities conducted under USAID/ENGINE Project.
