Cost–benefit analysis of early childhood devlopment in Burundi
The Investment Case for Early Childhood Development (ECD) in Burundi is a cost-benefit analysis of scaling up different packages of multi-sectoral interventions aimed at children under the age of eight. The analysis was conducted for UNICEF across a long-term time horizon (up to 2050) and saw us extracting non-monetary and monetary benefits associated with incrementally scaling up coverage of these interventions from a baseline rate.
Genesis study on ECD in Burundi selected for top UNICEF award in 2022.
Linking informal savings to formal financial services: A Learning Brief

African solutions: Why South-South Learning is crucial to locally-led aid
How can local institutions be best supported to manage HIV prevention programmes? By learning with and from their peers. That is why the South-South Learning Network pioneers new ways to shift traditional power imbalances within global development. This year, the SSLN facilitates linkage and learning between 15 African countries heavily burdened by HIV to co-develop and share best practices to prevent HIV infections according to UNAIDS's 5 HIV prevention pillars.
Read below how input from peer-countries are more effective and sustainable than traditional top-down approaches.

Guidance for selecting methods and tools for HIV economic studies
Genesis was awarded a contract to undertake a number of learning activities that will improve countries to accurately cost their HIV programmes, using national data systems, and interpret existing cost data, thereby enabling more effective planning, budgeting and ongoing decision-making.
From this work, Genesis produced guidance which enables users to select a costing methodology or tool which can assist policy makers and planners in finding the most appropriate costing method and tool for HIV and health programme financial planning. Download Guidance for selecting methods and tools for HIV economic studies here.
Users who wish to comment on the inclusion or exclusion of tools in this guide can contact Genesis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A condensed version of the guide can be found here: Annexure 1: Reference Guide for considering study types, methods and tools for HIV economic questions.
