IDinsight is an international development consulting organization that helps policymakers and managers make socially impact decisions using rigorous evidence. IDinsight’s core service tailors experimental evaluation methodologies - including, but not limited to, randomized controlled trials - to the priorities of policymakers and managers in international development. Other services, such as policy design consulting and scale-up support, complement our evaluation activities to provide comprehensive support for clients who want to maximize their social impact through evidence-based decision-making. By combining rigorous methodologies with a sharp focus on client needs, we answer policymakers’ most important questions. IDinsight’s vision is to improve millions of lives by transforming how the social sector innovates, learns and improves.
Founded by graduates of Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard Business School. IDinsight is rapidly expanding. Our clients and partners include state governments in India, national Ministries of Health in Africa, the World Bank, international NGOs such as iDE and the Clinton Health Access Initiative and social businesses like d.light.
