Impact Evaluation Vital For Understanding Successes, Failures In Global Health Programs

BMJ Blogs: Amanda Glassman and Rachel Silverman: Evaluating what works in global health
Amanda Glassman, vice president for programs, director of global health policy, and senior fellow; Rachel Silverman, senior policy analyst, both at the Center for Global Development, discuss CGD’s book, Millions Saved: New Cases of Proven Success in Global Health, “which chronicles the global health revolution from the ground up, featuring 22 case studies from low- and middle-income countries around the world,” and the importance of “rigorous impact evaluation” of health programs. They conclude, “Evaluate your programs at scale, learn from your successes and failures, and help the whole world better understand what works in global health” (5/5).
