Organization Description: The Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) was created to address health disparities in our local community and worldwide. Recognizing that many global health problems stem from economic, social, environmental, political and health care inequalities, DGHI brings together interdisciplinary teams to solve complex health problems and to train the next generation of global health scholars.

The DGHI Evidence Lab was formed in 2014 to conduct objective and high-quality evaluations of global health programs, interventions, and technologies in order to provide evidence of impact. Our goal is that the evidence generated by the DGHI Evidence Lab informs policy, programs and/or funding decisions. To achieve this, the Evidence Lab utilizes rigorous research designs paired with cutting-edge methods to collect and analyze data to understand whether health programs are having their intended effect. Our team blends theory and practice and draws upon the research and policy expertise across Duke University to inform our evaluations and to disseminate new evidence to policymakers, donors and diverse stakeholders in order to inform decision- making. Note that a core principle of the DGHI Evidence Lab is to strengthen the evaluation capacity of our local and project counterparts on collaborative projects.
