On April 5, the International Rescue Committee (IRC), along with IPA and other research partners, shared preliminary findings from research on adolescent girls programming in humanitarian settings. This research was conducted in partnership with IPA, the World Bank, and the Population Council. Speakers shared lessons learned from implementing these programs and remaining research gaps in adolescent girls programming. In humanitarian settings, adolescent girls are uniquely positioned as both particularly vulnerable and extremely vital to the future of a successful and healthy community, making the need for effective, evidence-based programming an essential common goal. The panel consisted of the following researchers: Dr. Meridith Gould (Independent consultant), Marie-France Guimond (IRC), Dr. Kelly Hallman (Population Council), Tricia Koroknay-Palicz (World Bank), Dr. Berk Özler (World Bank), and Tizita Tekletsadik (IRC).
