CEPA was appointed to conduct a mid-term evaluation of the initiative, which addressed three fundamental questions:
- Is the initiative on track to achieve its expected results in terms of an increase in the case detection and numbers of additional patients treated successfully in comparison with the baseline?
- Is the initiative likely to identify some innovative approaches which would support the intended results and be subsequently adopted and scaled up by relevant national-level partners?
- Is the initiative, including its governance, management and operational arrangements for approving and disbursing grants, well managed?
CEPA employed a range of techniques in support of the evaluation, including a desk-based review of documentation, quantitative analysis of the trends in country approvals and disbursements across funding ‘waves’, consultations with governmental and non-governmental stakeholders, an electronic survey, comparator analysis and country studies in Cambodia, Kenya, Nigeria and Uganda.
