Good Ventures made two gifts of $100,000 each to the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to support two randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in India and Pakistan that will test whether providing non-cash incentives increases child immunization rates.
