ICF Secures $236M USAID Health Survey Support Recompete Contract; Jennifer Welham Quoted

ICF (Nasdaq: ICFI) has received a potential five-year, $236 million follow-on contract from the U.S. Agency for International Development’s Bureau for Global Health to continue to support the Demographic and Health Surveys Program.

Under the recompete contract, ICF said Tuesday it will continue to help participating countries improve their capacity to gather, analyze and disseminate data and implement approaches to take into consideration marginalized and vulnerable populations.

The company will also advance the use of technologies to improve survey efficiency and automation, including the selective use of artificial intelligence tools in accordance with data security measures and country ownership requirements.

“The DHS Program has been instrumental in advancing our collective understanding of global health and its impact on populations, particularly in low- and middle-income countries,” said Jennifer Welham, senior vice president for health, people and human services at ICF.

“We are proud to continue our decades-long partnership with USAID by providing leading-edge health, survey research and data management expertise to support the development of effective health policies and interventions,” added Welham.

The DHS Program has become the world’s key source of critical and actionable data for health, population and nutrition programs for over four decades. It has analyzed and disseminated data through more than 400 surveys in over 90 countries.

National governments, researchers and other international organizations have used survey data generated by the program to support policymaking, financing, strategic planning and program management efforts.
