Update on our views on cataract surgery

Added: 11.05.2017 17:29 | 209 views | 0 comments

We're often asked why GiveWell doesn't any organizations that focus on providing surgeries. This post will describe:
  • Work we did previously to try to find surgery charities to recommend. In brief, our inability to identify organizations with room for more funding and high-quality monitoring data prevented us from recommending surgery charities in general.
  • Our current (rough, preliminary) view that cataract surgery's cost-effectiveness may be competitive with that of our priority programs, and some of the major open questions we have about our estimate.
  • Organizations implementing cataract surgery programs that we've spoken with. They run a variety of programs, and our impression is that they do not yet have the type of high-quality monitoring information we're interested in.
  • Our plans to move forward with to improve our understanding of cataract surgery as an intervention.
