Data Driven Strategies


How we work

How we work

Building on existing evidence, we apply qualitative, quantitative and mixed-method approaches to answer the toughest questions.

We focus on increasing effectiveness, maximizing impact, and driving the intersection between strategy, policy and advocacy to improve public health outcomes.​

Our global network includes experts in public health implementation, impact and outcomes research, product development and access, performance management, evaluation and advocacy.


What we do

for action

We synthesize the latest available data so that evidence is an integral part of strategy, policy, advocacy and programming. 


We review
the extent to which programs, partnerships
and policies are fit for purpose.


We work with clients
to develop new strategies and business plans and support them through implementation, planning and execution.

Performance indicators
and risk assessment

We assist clients to articulate their theories of change, develop key performance indicators and “fit for purpose” risk assessment tools. 

Leadership development

We coach senior leadership on management and execution and tailor fit for purpose technical content to get clients up to speed in emerging or complex issues.
