Tips for proposing your own intervention
  • Propose interventions that are unquestionably proven. D-Prize is only interested in ideas to increase distribution of a poverty intervention that is proven to be cost effective. Your proposal must include credible evidence proving the effectiveness of the poverty solution you want to distribute.
  • Consider cost-effectiveness. Is the impact of the intervention worth the cost? For instance, an expensive water pump may be one way to distribute clean water to communities, but a 10 cent iodine pill can accomplish the same result at a fraction of the  cost. Your proposal must include data on the raw cost of treatment and the cost of total treatment (including distribution). Preference is given to proposals that include cost-per-DALY.
  • Plan for scale. We seek ideas that will result in the mass-scale distribution of proven interventions. You should explain the current size of the market in need of your proven poverty solution, and your vision to reach this need.
  • Why now? If a gap exists between the current distribution and market need, why is that? Include a compelling argument for why more effective distribution can close this gap and create impact.
