STRIVE, a research consortium investigating the social norms and inequalities that drive HIV, hosted a free webinar on multidimensional poverty analysis on Wednesday 19 November 2014, 2.30pm GMT. Sabina Alkire, Director of OPHI, presented overall results from the Global Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) 2014, as well as highlights from related studies.

Using new datasets, the Global MPI has been updated for 31 countries in 2014, and calculated for two new countries. In total, it now covers 108 countries with data from 2002-2013, including 57 countries with data for 2009-2013.
Recent analyses of multidimensional poverty across these countries have covered a number of topics, including:
- changes in multidimensional poverty over time
- inequality among the poor
- rural-urban comparisons
