Dear SFP fellows and colleagues,

On behalf of the SFP board of directors and staff, I’m pleased to send you a copy of our 2015 Annual Report. 2015 was an eventful year, and I want to thank you in advance for taking a few minutes to review our activities.

Additionally, I would like to officially announce our grant awardees for 2016. First, however, I’d like to sincerely thank our individual grant reviewers, the committee co-chairs, and Marlo Polonsky, SFP’s Grants Officer, for all of their work in helping us determine which projects to fund.

I also want to thank everyone who participated by submitting concept papers or proposals. I appreciate the expertise needed and the time investment it takes to submit a request. This 2016 list of awardees, organized by grant type, represents those selected for funding. Congratulations to the study PIs and indeed to all the team members who will participate in these projects. I look forward to hearing about your progress.

Lastly, I’d like to express my deep gratitude to our generous donor who makes funding research grants focused on reducing unintended pregnancy and securing access to safe abortion possible.

Warm regards,
Susan Higginbotham signature
