Featured Initiative: Partnership for Central America

The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health is the lead academic institution in the Partnership for Central America, an independent nonprofit that is the coordinating body of the White House Call to Action for Central America.

Working with our collaborators, we have created a new data dashboard to give policy makers and private-sector investors deep insight into the economic and demographic characteristics and behavioral patterns in communities in Northern Central America, specifically Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras.

Powered by machine learning, the data dashboard gives members of the Partnership an unprecedented understanding of conditions on the ground in individual neighborhoods. It can be used to identify the interventions most likely to elevate the quality of life and promote economic growth in these regions, enabling both public and private-sector partners to tailor their investments for maximum impact.

Featured Report

To foster transformative growth in Northern Central America, we are taking a closer look at real-life conditions on the ground, including qualitative metrics such as hope for the future and trust in government. We aim to identify interventions to improve living conditions, especially in hotspots of migration, and then to track progress across multiple metrics. This white paper examines the root causes of migration at the local level, to an extraordinary degree made possible by the Impact Metrics Dashboard.
