Research & Analytics

At the Virtue Foundation, research and analytics is a large part of all of our program areas, and an ultimate goal in every project we undertake. Analytics is enabled by knowledge and data. Therefore, another guiding principle of our work is the collection and sharing of interdisciplinary data to better inform our programming. To this end, we are currently developing several interactive map projects that will lay out need and available resources to inform where assistance is needed, and help guide specifically what kind of intervention is needed as well.

Actionable Data Initiative

Virtue Foundation seeks to increase the efficiency of global healthcare delivery, improving access to medical and surgical services for millions of people.

The demand for global healthcare is enormous. The disparity in surgical care alone demonstrates the magnitude of the problem. According to the Lancet Commissions:

  • 5 billion people do not have access to safe, affordable surgical and anesthesia care when needed.
  • Access is worst in low- and low-middle income countries where 9 out of 10 people cannot access basic surgical care.
  • In the landscape of global surgery, only 6% of all surgeries happen in the poorest countries, where over 33% of the world’s population lives.

VFMatch is an innovative technology platform that intelligently matches need and resources in the healthcare sector. Its primary goal is to reduce inefficiencies in the delivery of healthcare by matching the needs of underserved populations around the world with the resources of governments, non-profits, companies and individuals.Learn More

Predictive Analytics and Data Mapping for Good

Born from years of on the ground medical missions, the project seeks to use predictive analytics and machine learning algorithms to analyze geospatial data, infrastructure, risk factors, and other environmental conditions to better predict need and match available resources.Learn More
