Several organizations—including Merck for Mothers, and USAID,—have partnered to deploy the world’s first health development impact bond, the Utkrisht Impact Bond. Mathematica will contribute to this work as an independent assessor to verify the facilities’ adherence to different requirements.
Health and Nutrition
Mathematica works closely with its partners to identify promising strategies and interventions, measure the performance of complex initiatives, and evaluate the effectiveness of specific solution levers. Our goal is to generate evidence and learning that will guide decision-making and advance the field—amplifying the positive impact of our partners’ efforts on health and well-being across the globe.
Our international health work spans a range of issue areas, including reproductive health, maternal and child health, nutrition, health system strengthening, infectious diseases, and community health. Our project teams leverage our full suite of capabilities, and expansive global partner networks, to respond to the diverse information and learning needs of our clients. Using tailored approaches and tools, we bring data, evidence, and insights to program design, execution, and refinement processes, and help our partners and the broader field advance evidence-based solutions to the world’s toughest health challenges.
