AIID has integrated its activities with sister institute AIGHD, the Amsterdam Institute for Global Health and Development.
AIID supports the growing calls for open science – we contribute by making our data available. The first datasets that we are publishing were collected and analysed for the Indonesia country-level evaluation of MFS II, the 2011-2015 Dutch grant framework for civil society organisations.
The Financial & Health Diaries project documents how 240 low-income families in rural Nigeria and Kenya manage money & health issues.
Winny Koster, Marije Groot Bruinderink and Wendy Janssens conducted a unique qualitative study on men’s ideas about female condoms in Zimbabwe, Nigeria and Cameroon. The study is unique because male opinions on this topic are generally ignored. It was published on 30 September 2015 in International Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health.
AIID has finished two studies within the framework of a large-scale evaluation of the Medefinancieringsstelsel (MFS), MoFA’s subsidy framework for civil society organisations with a budget of € 1,9 billion in the 2011-2015 period. AIID conducted a synthesis study combining the results of almost 200 separate evaluations from eight different countries. AIID was also responsible for the Indonesia study, which included impact evaluations of twelve different projects (from cashew nut certification to assistance to victims of gender-based violence).
