Change in leadership for Evidence Aid – statement – 6 February 2018
After dedicating himself to Evidence Aid for more than two years, Jeroen Jansen, has left us to support his family and return to the Netherlands. It was a difficult decision for all involved and both parties are sad to part. Jeroen joined Evidence Aid as our first Director in September 2015, when the organisation became an independent charity. With the support of Claire Allen as Operations Manager, and later joined by Jane Higgins and Sultan Torshkhoev, Jeroen guided Evidence Aid into a new era. Our reach and network has grown extensively, including new partners and volunteers who are crucial to so much of what Evidence Aid does. Under his leadership, Evidence Aid implemented many innovative and successful initiatives to raise the profile of the organisation and promote a more evidence-based approach to humanitarian action. We are grateful for the contributions Jeroen has made to Evidence Aid and our mission to inspire and enable the humanitarian sector to apply an evidenced-based approach to improve outcomes for those in greatest need.
