GiveWell's Cost-Effectiveness Analyses

This page contains links to our current and past cost-effectiveness analyses. More about our approach to cost-effectiveness analysis.

We made a video walkthrough to help explain how our cost-effectiveness model works, based on the final 2016 version of the model. Our intention in publishing this is to improve our transparency by making this model easier to understand, but because we're speaking off the cuff, it's possible that there are minor errors. Note that we consider these estimates to be extremely rough - more about this on our page about cost-effectiveness and in this blog post.

Make sure to watch the video in HD in full screen to be able to see the details.
