Secretariat (SISN operations)
Since 2016, vital and substantial funding for the Secretariat has been kindly donated from the Sight and Life Foundation. From 2014 to the end of 2018, Sight and Life also generously donated the in-kind contributions of Dr. Eva Monterrosa, to facilitate the Founding and running of SISN.
SISN funds a portion of the Secretariat costs from membership dues.
SISN is partnered with the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) under a Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) three-year grant to improve implementation and scaling-up of anemia control programs for women in Kenya and Uganda. Funding runs from October 2017 to September 2020.
SISN is able to participate in the Knowledge for Implementation and Impact Initiative (KI3) through a grant by Sight and Life. KI3 aims to strengthen access to, and utilization of, implementation knowledge in SUN countries, with an emphasis on:
- technical assistance
- effective access to and use of tools, frameworks and experiential knowledge, and implementation research.
In 2019, SISN received an unrestricted grant from the Eleanor Crook Foundation (ECF) to support the dissemination of implementation science information through enhanced communication activities..
