This grant will support a senior-level convening and publication to see if the multibillion-dollar rollout of COVID vaccines in Africa and other low-income countries can be leveraged to strengthen health systems and include other health services, including reproductive health. The COVAX rollout is likely to be the largest one-off public health program ever launched, as major donors and the GAVI vaccine alliance join forces to pay for COVID vaccine campaigns to reach billions of people in the developing world, including hundreds of millions who rarely have access to health care. The Hewlett Foundation, the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (the largest funder of this convening), and their partners (Africa CDC and the World Bank’s Global Financing Facility) are keen to ensure that this COVAX program maximizes potential health impact.

Grants to this Grantee
for the India Climate Collaborative
Dalberg Consulting supports the India Climate Collaborative, a first-of-its kind collective of Indian philanthropies that seeks to direct funding and visibility toward climate action in India. Dalberg is serving as the Collaborative’s secretariat to help hire staff, develop initial charitable, programmatic activities, and cultivate member engagement.
for measuring the impact of advocacy
This grant will enable Dalberg Consulting to help develop a more sensible, collaborative, and effective way to measure the impact of advocacy. By taking stock of the tools already being used within the advocacy community and "adjacent fields" such as corporate marketing to measure their progress and impact, and piloting one or two new tools, Dalberg intends to learn about best practices in advocacy measurement and ways in which these practices could be improved upon. Dalberg ultimately hopes to support advocacy organizations to adopt an advocacy measurement approach that is easy to use, objective, and can act as a common language for organizations and funders.
for support of the Financing for Development conference and post-2015 development agenda agreement
The Third International Conference on Financing for Development will be the key negotiation at which countries determine their financial commitments for the post-2015 development agenda. This grant will cover the expenses of a Dalberg employee who is an expert on development finance to work directly at the U.S. State Department for two years. It is anticipated that this individual, under the auspices of the Franklin Fellowship, will provide technical support to the U.S. government before, during, and after the Conference to ensure that the United States considers all possible sources of development finance. This will support the government in making the appropriate commitments and supporting the success of the post-2015 development goals.
