The Strategic Impact Evaluation Fund is a multi-donor trust fund that supports research to evaluate the effectiveness of programs to alleviate poverty and build shared prosperity. The fund, which was started with the assistance of the British Government's Department for International Development, finances impact evaluations, capacity building and knowledge sharing activities. In the first Call for Proposals, 30 projects were picked to receive initial funding (initial funding does not guarantee full funding), among them 5 projects in the Health Systems and Services Delivery cluster. The Fund has now launched its second call for proposals. For further information on what evidence the fund seeks to generate in the area of health, read the cluster note.
