Evidence Demonstrating Impact – RCTs and Systematic Review Research Data

The CI has recently been working in partnership with and with support from UNICEF New York to identify high quality, high credibility, recently peer review journal published research data (with a numeric impact point) that provides compelling evidence for the positive direct impact of social change, behaviour change and community engagement action on priority development issues. A consultation group from this network provided review and input. Just a few examples of the data identified in substantive Randomised Control Trials or Systematic Reviews include: Reduced neonatal mortality by 41%; 11.8% increase in the number of children fully immunised; 49% reduction in maternal mortality; fathers were 1.59 times more likely to be engaged with their children; 25% reduction in sexual violence; adolescent girls 4.9 percentage points more likely to engage in income-generating activities; 28 percent decrease in teen pregnancy; 5.2% increase on student's expectations regarding their future; 12.55% increase in child cognitive development; 26% reduction on those reporting experiencing physical violence; and more.
