1. POSITION VACANT: Senior Associate – Communications, Evidence Action, New Delhi



Founded in 2013, Evidence Action is a global, non-profit organization operating in seven countries in Africa and Asia, that aims to be a world leader in scaling evidence-based and cost-effective programs, to reduce the burden of poverty for hundreds of millions of people living in the poorest places on earth.

Deworm the World Initiative” and “Dispensers for Safe Water” are the two flagship programmes of Evidence Action. Last year Deworm the World reached 280 million people with deworming medications, partnering with governments to launch, scale, and sustain mass school-based deworming programs. Meanwhile, Dispensers for Safe Water provided four million people across rural Africa with clean water, saving thousands of young lives. The approach relies on an innovative and human-centric design to deliver clean water at source.

In addition to running these scaled programs, Evidence Action leverages its unique “Accelerator” to develop the next generation of programs. These programs are rigorously tested to ensure exceptional scale, cost-effectiveness, and clear evidence of impact.

In 2019, Evidence Action launched an ambitious new strategy, with the goal of doubling impact over the next five years, with much of that impact coming from new programs identified and scaled through the Accelerator.

Evidence Action has a presence across seven countries, with major offices in Nairobi, Delhi, and Washington, D.C. Evidence Action’s programs have been recognized by GiveWell, the Skoll Foundation, the Life You Can Save, Giving What We Can, and covered in the Economist, NPR, and the New York Times.

In India, Evidence Action’s technical service provider EAII Advisors Private Limited, provides technical assistance to national and selected state governments’ Ministries of Health, Education, and Women and Child Development, to implement the school and Anganwadi based National Deworming Day (NDD) and Iron and Folic Acid (IFA) supplementation programs, to improve children’s health, education, and long-term development.
