Web links (health and other topics) recommended by Piroska Bisits Bullen (Inter Aide Programme manager in Malawi) :

·International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie)
·USAID Development Experience Clearinghous (DEC)
·DFID Research for Development (R4D)
·The Cochrane Collaboration 
·The Campbell Collaboration
·Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL)

“The main reason I find these sites useful is that they contain information about which types of interventions work, and which don’t work (and the evidence to show this is the case). I find this information more useful than just having tools and resources for running programs. I also refer to relevant international organization websites (WHO, UNICEF, UNAIDS, etc) frequently.

I recently started writing my own development blog with practical tips / tools for people working in the field ( so I also find a lot of information when I am researching those blog posts.

Most of the websites in the previous list are relevant for all development topics. In addition to these websites I have also completed many free online courses that cover different development topics. I did write a blog post recently describing my favorite ones. You can read it here:

The following websites have also been started recently to share both positive and negative results from field projects, which I find interesting:

·Practical Initiatives Network (PIN)
·Admitting Failure
