Insightful PopTech talk from Kevin Starr, Director of the Mulago Foundation on funding the best solutions to the biggest problems in the poorest countries. Kevin believes all projects need to answer four questions:
- Is it needed?
- Does it work?
- Will it get to those who need it?
- Will they use it correctly when they get it?
- Will it create lasting change that goes to scale?
How we measure our social impact is a hard set of strategic questions and knowing what to measure is what makes the difference in our analysis. There is no fixed science in measuring human behavior and the social outcomes of interventions but we must do better to create sustainability.
