START Center Global Program
The START Center Global Program was launched in 2011 with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Initially, the Program was designed to support research and analysis for program teams at the Gates Foundation. Since that time, The START Center Global Program has expanded and now provides high-quality research and analytic support for a number of additional clients.
