Rockville, Md. – Abt Associates will have an opportunity to work on a new iteration of a five-year, $250 million contract with the Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).

- Contextual/policy analyses of issues impacting HRSA-supported activities such as treatment of people with HIV, maternal and child health programs and policies, and community health centers and workforce development.
- Providing communications around evaluation studies, evaluation-related services and policy-related findings.
- Analyzing the implementation of best practices.
