We are excited to share our latest initiative, the Evidence Dialogues Interview Series, which will feature leaders and influencers in the field of international development who will reflect on their own evidence journeys and the role of evidence in decision-making. In our inaugural interview, Seth Berkley, CEO, GAVI, speaks about how reliable evaluation evidence has been useful for GAVI’s mission to improve vaccine delivery and immunization around the world. He underscores the importance of reaching zero-dose families and building resilient health systems between epidemics to deliver countermeasures during outbreaks.
The Development Evidence Portal
The Development Evidence Portal (DEP) is the world’s largest database of impact evaluations and systematic reviews on interventions to improve lives in low- and middle-income countries. It is updated monthly and contains more than 10,000 impact evaluations, systematic reviews and evidence gap maps. The DEP provides advanced searching capabilities and a rich set of options for filtering studies to help you find the evidence you need.

The initiative, just like the problems it looks to address, is complex. This blog explains how theories of change are helping us navigate this complexity as we evaluate if and how multiple interventions working in tandem make a difference.
