Millions Saved: New Cases of Proven Success in Global Health.

The 3ie-funded study by Mohanan et al. evaluated two programmes by Indian state governments that enabled pregnant women from poor households to access free maternity care at public or private hospitals. The researchers found that the Chiranjeevi Yojna in Gujarat or the Thayi Bhagya Yojana in Karnataka had no significant effect on institutional delivery rates or maternal health outcomes. In his foreword, Bill Gates says “ ...In Gujarat in western India, for example, a program to pay private doctors to offer hospital child-births to poor women failed to increase the number of hospital deliveries or reduce birth-related complications –because it never reached the poorest mothers. What this case showed is that good intentions need effective, targeted delivery systems to make a real difference. There is as much to learn from a health program that did not reach its goals as from one that did.”

Reflections on the impact of agricultural certification on well-being

Carlos Oya and colleagues recently published a systematic review of agricultural certification schemes that stands out for me as useful research for informing policy and programming. Why do I say that? Agricultural certification schemes set and monitor compliance to voluntary standards with the objective of making production socially sustainable and terms of trade fairer for smallholder

The last few weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind. What I know is that HIV self-testing has finally made it.

Multiple high-level representatives from

Any chance to use impact evaluations with no impact? : the Mexican case

It feels like a cold water shower when impact evaluations (IEs) do not show positive impacts. Those studies are neither sexy for academic publication nor for public policy use. But the fact that some IEs show no impact of certain programs or projects, it’s an important piece of information! I would like to suggest here

Not missing the woods for the trees: mapping evidence gaps on land use and forestry programmes

Forest protection is among the most effective approaches we have to mitigate climate change. At the same time, agricultural land and forests provide food, livelihoods and fuel for billions of people globally, particularly in low and middle-income countries (L&MICs). At the same time there are concerns that large-scale forest protection programming will have negative knock-on
