Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Today's leaders know they must strengthen systems to achieve sustainable progress in health, education and nutrition. But many grapple with the complexities of how. How to mobilize and focus resources to better protect mothers and children from malnutrition so they're able to grow and thrive. How to introduce play-based learning into national early education programs so that young minds can thrive. How to ensure that affordable, high-quality care reaches people living at the furthest edges of the health system.

Health

Results for Development provides evidence, advice, support and connections to change agents as they drive the progress needed to deliver high-quality, affordable health services for all.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Education is playing an increasingly important role as economies and societies become more knowledge-based. R4D’s education initiatives concentrate on education financing (specifically focusing on aid effectiveness, emerging donors and innovative financing), early learning, secondary education skills development, and innovative non-state education interventions. This area complements our work in health and governance, and cross-cutting themes include the relationships among education, nutrition and health, and supporting civil society organizations in their work to increase public sector accountability.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Results for Development works at the global and country level to help change agents finance and meet ambitious nutrition targets.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We work with government officials, civil society leaders and social innovators around the globe to create strong systems that support healthy, educated people.

Results for Development engages change agents in low- and middle-income countries — government officials, civil society leaders and social innovators — to untangle the complexities of how to achieve sustainable progress in health, education and nutrition.

We listen to local change agents to find out what they need most, and then we offer fresh perspectives, global evidence, access to peer networks, process support and coaching to help them overcome challenges and roadblocks. We excel at combining global expertise in health, education and nutrition with a deep understanding of what makes systems work and proven approaches like collaborative and adaptive learning.

*Since 2010, the Center for Health Market Innovations (CHMI) has been documenting health market innovations across the developing world. CHMI envisions a world in which the private sector – where the majority of people in many countries go for health care – reaches its potential as a source for quality, accessible and affordable health care for all people.

*R4D worked with health ministries around the world to build the talents of their leaders and strengthen their institutions. Through the Ministerial Leadership Initiative for Global Health (MLI), R4D helped health ministers and senior staff in Ethiopia, Mali, Nepal, Senegal, and Sierra Leone build effective leadership and strong capacity to develop and implement sound policies.

*R4D modeled and analyzed the long term costs and financing options for AIDS over the next two decades in a study examining how major policy shifts now can improve the impact of future expenditures. Authors from the financing group of the aids2031project, including R4D Managing Director Robert Hecht, addressed critical questions, taking a long-term view of financial requirements under different possible scenarios as the HIV/AIDS pandemic unfolds over the next two decades up to 2031, the year that will mark the 50th anniversary of AIDS.

*R4D launched the Transparency and Accountability Program (TAP) in 2007, with funding from the Hewlett Foundation. To date, TAP has implemented 39 projects in partnership with 31 CSOs in 21 countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Through technical support, peer learning opportunities, and small grants—often just $50,000—these CSOs have made remarkable progress in monitoring and advocating for better services for the poor.

*Working with other CSOs, TAP grantee Consumer Unity and Trust Society (CUTS) in India arranged to have standard drug lists posted in each health facility and publicized staff absences from clinics as a way of applying pressure for better performance by the government health department.

*In February 2011, the Global Fund's Market Dynamics Committee (MDC) commissioned R4D to develop concrete strategies which optimized 'value for money' across its health commodities portfolio, with a particular focus on the $500 million in possible savings on HIV/AIDS drugs
