Reading this helped ciralfy my thinking about this battle of the mammoths. Basically, the issue is that we suspect UNICEF's approach may be better, but we can't do a straight comparison between all of UNICEF and all of PSI. So why don't we ask UNICEF to send us the full story on their activities in two different regions: one in which we would guess their approach would work better (i.e., a region where the conditions PSI ignores, pneumonia/perinatal conditions/etc., are major factors), and one in which we would guess that PSI's would work better. Both regions should be very close/similar to areas where PSI is also working.I think there's a good chance that one org just has a better approach, and will be better in both regions. If not, we can figure out how much of Africa looks like the regions where PSI's approach rules, and how much looks like the regions where UNICEF's approach rules. It's a very rough approach, but better than The Matrix Revolutions.
