Note: This page was created using content previously published by Good Ventures and GiveWell, the organizations that created the Open Philanthropy Project. Uses of “we” and “our” on this page may therefore refer to Good Ventures or GiveWell, but they still represent the work of the Open Philanthropy Project.

Good Ventures, with input from GiveWell, awarded a GiveWell Incubation Grant of $1,104,259 to the Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA) at the University of California, Berkeley to support the Kenya Life Panel Survey Round 4 (KLPS-4), a follow-up study to assess the long-term impact of deworming on consumption. GiveWell Incubation Grants are recommended by GiveWell staff, and support the development of potential future top charities and improve the quality of GiveWell’s recommendations.

This survey will follow up on the study that is most central to GiveWell’s current view of deworming. GiveWell hopes that the results will provide a useful update to the evidence base for deworming, which could influence the amount of money that they recommend donating to deworming charities.

See GiveWell’s page on this gift for more details.
