Replication studies

© M Yousuf Tushar , UN

The Replication Programme has funded 23 replications through four rounds of funding. We track and maintain a list of all 3ie-funded and in-house replication studies, with details on the status of each. Every time a study progresses to a new stage, 3ie updates this list.

Please direct any questions or comments to replication@3ieimpact.org. To learn more upcoming funding opportunities and replication related events, click here.

We are also funding internal replications of influential impact evaluations in HIV Prevention and Financial Services for the Poor
