Evidence Action

Evidence Action aims to be a world leader in scaling evidence-based and cost-effective programs to reduce the burden of poverty. The organization operates two flagship programs - The Deworm the World Initiative and Dispensers for Safe Water - which collectively reach more than 260 million people globally, the bulk of whom are children and youth. Evidence Action’s programs operate in 7 countries: India, Pakistan, Kenya, Uganda, Malawi, Nigeria, and Ethiopia. The Deworm the World Initiative, founded by two Nobel Laureates, works with governments to treat parasitic worm infections for over 260 million children annually, through mass, school-based deworming programs that typically cost less than USD 0.50 per child, per treatment to administer. The program has supported the delivery of over a billion treatments since inception and has been proven to dramatically reduce school absenteeism and increase future earnings as children grow into adults. It has been recognized several times as a GiveWell top charity. Dispensers for Safe Water provides free and reliable safe water access to nearly 4 million people in rural Africa.  The program installs and maintains chlorine dispensers at communal water points and recruits local promoters to encourage their use. Dispensers for Safe Water aims to reduce rates of diarrhea -  a leading cause of child mortality. It is recognized by Impact Matters as one of the most cost-effective clean water interventions in the world and up to 1.5 times more cost-effective than comparable alternatives, primarily because it is able to sustain uniquely high adoption (or usage) rates among the communities it reaches. Evidence Action also operates an Accelerator that is charged with building a new generation of evidence-based and cost-effective programs to reach millions more people and double organizational impact by 2024, in line with the organization’s ambitious 5-year strategy. Vision: Building a world where hundreds of millions of people in the poorest places have better opportunities and their lives are measurably improved.
