We don't conduct on-the-ground evaluations of developing world interventions: our skills lie in collecting, collating, and making accessible first-order research done by others. We take the use of evidence very seriously and aim to rely on the most trustworthy sources available on any given issue. Some of our preferred sources are listed below.
- The Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab is an excellent source of randomized control trial data, the gold standard for evidence in impact evaluation. Their work provides rigorous tests of interventions designed to alleviate poverty.
- The Disease Control Priorities in Developing Countries Report (DCP2) provides quantitative data on cost-effectiveness for a wide range of health interventions in the developing world. A new edition, with improved methodology, is due soon.
- GiveWell is a US charity evaluator notable for its commitment to transparency and a rigorous research methodology. They are especially thorough in their evaluation of individual organisations.
- The World Health Organisation (WHO) produces a useful cost-effectiveness report, the WHO-CHOICE guide. It consists of a mixture of modelling and meta-analysis, and is similar in scope to DCP2.
