1. Why Charity Entrepreneurship Is Researching Animals
The CE team generally believes that animals are conscious and morally relevant agents. Given the numbers of animals involved in animal agriculture and other animal-use endeavors, this makes it a high scale and high importance issue.
2. Why Charity Entrepreneurship Is Researching Mental Health and Happiness
On broad considerations of scale and neglectedness, it is shocking to see how little government funding is spent in this area relative to the size of the problem. Self-harm, mental, neurological, and substance use disorders account for 12% of the global burden of disease when measured in DALYs. But in 2016, the median government spending on mental healthcare was as little as 2.4% of all healthcare spending.
3. Why Charity Entrepreneurship is Researching Family Planning
According to the United Nations Population Division, in 2019, 190 million women worldwide reported that although they did not want to become pregnant, nor are they using any method of contraception. This gap represents ten percent of all women of reproductive age worldwide, and is referred to as the unmet need for family planning.
4. Why Charity Entrepreneurship is Researching EA Meta
EA meta has always been an area we have been excited about and think holds promise (after all, CE is a meta charity). In the past we have not focused on meta areas for a few reasons. One of the most important is that we wanted to confirm the impact of the CE model in more measurable areas such as global health and animal advocacy. After two formal programs we are now sufficiently confident in the model to expand to more meta charities.
