François Chiocchio is involved in two international projects that have recently received financing. In the first, titled “Reduce maternal and neonatal mortality across a region, an integrated approach to the management of pregnancy and childbirth,” his role will be to study interprofessional collaboration in a change management context. The principal investigators are Marie-Hélène Chomienne, University of Ottawa (as well as Jean Charles Moreau and Samba Corr Sarr).
The second project, led by Valéry Ridde, University of Montreal, is titled “Results-based financing in maternal and child health.” In this project, professor Chiocchio will study the impact of results-based financing on motivation and teamwork.
Both projects received 1,000,000$ over 5 years and will take place in four West African countries: Sénégal, Bénin, Burkina Faso, and Mali. They are part of a group of 20 projects which recently received funding from Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada, the International Development Research Centre, and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
