Monitoring and Evaluation
Measuring the outcomes and impact of public health programs has increasingly become a top priority of donors, governments and international development organisations. Operational research and monitoring and evaluation (M&E) activities aim to document lessons learnt and generate evidence about what has been achieved in terms of improved processes and health impact, and to establish which approaches are more successful than others.
EHG has over 24 years of accumulated experience in operational research and M&E in the field of global public health. Much of our work has been of a multi-disciplinary nature involving teams of social scientists, public health experts, health economists and statisticians carrying out multi-country reviews, qualitative studies and surveys, complex evaluations and impact assessments. Special areas of expertise include: baseline, mid-term and final programme evaluations; impact evaluations based on OECD/DAC evaluation criteria and the use of Theory of Change; multi-country reviews, feasibility studies and assessments; data verification exercises; M&E systems strengthening; and cross-cutting capacity development of people and organisations.
Our work has focused primarily on the specialist areas of pharmaceuticals and supply chain management; health sector reform; management and institutional development; HIV and AIDS, malaria and TB; and sexual and reproductive health and rights.
