The Girl Roster: An Innovative Approach to Ending the Gender Data Gap

The Population Council’s Girl Roster is a practical tool to help increase girls' access to vital resources, facilities, and services.  The Girl Roster is helping partners reach adolescent girls in some of the poorest communities around the world to help programs of all types become more cost-effective, reach more girls in need, and attain measurable results.

In an advertorial sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in the New York Times, the Girl Roster is cited as one of the innovative tools that is helping to close the gender data gap.  Kelly Hallman, senior associate, is quoted in the piece.

“The Girl Roster has helped us identify who’s there and who is able to access services and then see how to target these girls who are not being reached.The girls left behind are really what the Girl Roster is designed to try to address.”
