Data for Impact (D4I) helps countries find innovative approaches to achieve their goals.
Engaging Data for Impact (D4I) enables organizations to draw on the technical and administrative resources of a global, centrally funded institution that has its origins as an associate award of MEASURE Evaluation, which closed in 2020. D4I is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) for six years, from September 2018 to December 2024.
D4I works alongside USAID missions and local partners to identify efficient and innovative ways to meet a range of information needs—with the goal that partners will be able to meet future needs independently.

D4I is a valuable mechanism to consider for your monitoring, evaluation, data analysis and use, and other research needs. D4I is a cross-bureau global health mechanism that supports USAID’s Bureau of Global Health and missions. It builds on and reinforces U.S. government efforts to support countries to generate and use high-quality data as evidence to improve programs, policies, and outcomes.
D4I continues the work of MEASURE Evaluation in evaluation, data quality, and data use through the adaptation and use of existing tools and methods and development of new ones, as needed.
D4I provides the following benefits:
- Structure for quick engagement
- Access to global technical resources and experiences
- Learning and best practices from other countries
- Expertise to adapt knowledge for specific country contexts
D4I also has technical expertise and organizational capacity to work with local implementers to help strengthen the skills that will enable them to become direct recipients of awards from USAID.
