How do you know if your program is reaching the poor…?

Exciting new tool that will revolutionize how health programs measure their impact in serving the poor

​This month, the Health Systems Hub launched an exciting new tool that will revolutionize how health programs measure their impact in serving the poor.

Many programs in developing countries prioritize serving the poor: those most in need, most at risk, or most marginalized. The challenge is that it can be very hard to know who is poor. Many programs only learn how well they’ve met their mission to serve the poor one or two years later when there is an expensive program evaluation or a national census, if at all.  Program leaders need real-time feedback to adjust and improve service delivery.

To respond to this need, Results for Development Institute and a team of agencies including USAID, Population Services International, Marie Stopes International, Broadbranch and Metrics for Management have partnered to create The EquityTool – a simple, fast and FREE mobile-based application that allows any health program to know the wealth of its clientele. Let us know what you think of the tool by logging in to the Member Portal or posting on our Facebook page
