Program areas at Evidence Action

Deworm the world initiative: evidence action's deworm the world initiative helps to translate evidence into widespread practice by advocating for school-based deworming to policymakers and providing technical assistance to launch, strengthen and sustain school-based deworming programs. Evidence action works directly with governments to rapidly scale programs targeting all at-risk school-age children.

Evidence action beta: evidence action beta identifies and pressure-tests evidence-based innovations that reduce the burden of poverty, and then designs and builds the most cost-effective programs for massive scale. Evidence action beta looks for promising interventions that have already been subjected to rigorous scientific trials, focusing on interventions that are pro-poor, have measurable impact, and have the potential to be cost-effectively scaled up to benefit millions of people.

Dispensers for safe water program: chlorine dispensers are an innovative, low-cost approach proven to increase rates of household chlorination of drinking water in rural areas of sub-saharan africa.
