Philanthropy and Technoscience: Effective Altruism's Interventions in Neglected Tropical Diseases
Samantha Vanderslott, Associate Professor, Department of Paediatrics, University of Oxford
This talk considers how ‘effective altruism’ produces philanthropic value by allocating moral worth to particular causes and interventions. The case of neglected tropical diseases shows how effective altruists produce evidence on neglect by reworking global health categories, and how they assess the efficiency of low-cost interventions.

Clio Dintilhac, Doctoral Student, Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies
Today, health official development assistance is 60% larger than education official development assistance. This difference is striking since in the early 2000s, both sectors were at the same level. This most similar system design study explores potential explanations for this puzzle and argues these different trajectories are not explained by the structure of the issues, but by the strategic choices of actors.
