S2 Episode 10: Improving the way we measure impact

Measuring the impact of violence prevention interventions is an incredibly important part of the process, as it allows us to understand what works and what doesn’t. But can the way we assess outcomes be improved?

In this episode our co-hosts, Elizabeth Dartnall, Executive Director, SVRI, and SVRI Global Advocacy Director, Ayesha Mago talk to Sangeeta Chatterji, Lecturer at The University of Edinburgh, and co-author of 'Optimizing the Construction of Outcome Measures for Impact Evaluations of Intimate Partner Violence Prevention Interventions'. Together they discuss the “any” versus “no” metric often used in the field to measure outcomes - and the limitations of this binary approach. We discover new, more nuanced measurements that can be used to paint a more complete picture about the effectiveness of interventions. And we learn just how dramatically our understanding of impact can change by simply altering the way we interpret the data.
