In partnership with the Population Council and Stanford University, AIR is conducting a systematic review to synthesize findings from experimental and quasi-experimental evaluations and linked process evaluations or qualitative research to examine the theories of change, enablers and barriers associated with achieving health outcomes through women’s groups that integrate economic and health activities.

The project team will include studies that report effects on health-related knowledge, behavior and outcomes amongst adults and children, for domains consistent with the World Health Organization's (WHO's) definition of health as a "state of complete physical, mental and social well-being."
