International Policy Research
Mathematica's depth and breadth of experience in evaluating complex social programs in the United States fill an important gap in the international arena. Our skills in designing and conducting rigorous, evidence-based evaluations of programs and policies strengthen international health, education, and other approaches to poverty reduction research and evaluation. We work with governments, multilateral donors, foundations, private organizations, and nonprofit partners to help them develop indicators of program impact and measure results. Our experts conduct formative research, situation assessments, policy analysis, and program evaluations. They also help ensure capacity development in countries around the world.
