New Incentives receives major grant and is praised by GiveWell

From dozens to hundreds of HIV-free newborns

We are excited to announce that New Incentives will be scaling up its program to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV from dozens to hundreds of West African women and infants in the coming months.

This expansion is made possible by the support of two renowned donors, the Lampert Family Foundation and Good Ventures, the charitable foundation of Facebook Co-founder Dustin Moskovitz and his wife Cari Tuna, the President of Good Ventures.

The decision by these two foundations was in part influenced by the well-known charity evaluator GiveWell. As recently announced on its blog, GiveWell considers it “plausible that New Incentives will eventually become a GiveWell top charity” because of its evidence-based program and commitment to transparency.

While we are happy to receive this initial recognition from a trusted source, we are aware that we still have a lot of work ahead of us to be considered as a top charity one day.

Given the critical task of scaling up our program effectively and efficiently, our Founder and CEO Svetha has moved to Nigeria in West Africa to personally ensure we can prevent as many mother-to-child transmissions of HIV as possible.

If you are as excited about this news as we are, please take a few minutes to:
