A Narrative History of the Population and Reproductive Health Program
December 2, 2020 | Grantee Publications | Population & Reproductive Health

To capture the history of the Population and Reproductive Health (PRH) program, MacArthur staff provide a narrative history of how and why the Foundation entered this field, how it chose areas of emphasis, and how its grantmaking strategies evolved over time. From 1986 to 2018, MacArthur’s PRH program provided a total of $372 million in grants and supported 589 organizations and 456 individuals through leadership awards. With support for research, policy, programmatic interventions, and international conferences, MacArthur’s grantmaking in India, Mexico, Nigeria, and Brazil helped grow civil society organizations and contribute to a global paradigm shift from population control to reproductive health and women’s rights.
