Evidence Action scales proven interventions that improve the lives of millions. We implement cost-effective interventions whose efficacy is backed by substantial rigorous evidence.
Evidence Action identifies innovative, appropriate financing mechanisms and builds best practice operational models. We voraciously self-evaluate, learn, and improve our models for scaling with a commitment to transparency on progress, impact, and value for money.
Our current programs are:
Dispensers for Safe Water is an entrepreneurial program for more than 4.7 million people in rural Eastern and Southern Africa. It is a proven innovation that dramatically expands access to water treatment at an extremely low cost.
Deworm the World Initiative scales up school-based deworming programs worldwide to improve children’s health, education, and long-term development. It currently supports deworming of more than 200 million children annually.
Evidence Action Beta explores what program with proven impact might work next for millions of people. Similar to beta testing for software, we are pressure-testing promising interventions as to their suitability for massive scale-up.
