Uganda End of Project Evaluations
The Global Health Liaisons team has completed evaluations for two IMAM/CMAM programs striving to address severe acute malnutrition in areas hit by a disaster. Building a better understanding of linkages and barriers to nutrition will help decision-makers and program planners to direct resources in a more focused way. The goals of the evaluation were to:
- Assess program relevance, appropriateness, efficiency and quality of services
- Assess program effectiveness, sustainability and equity
- Document evidence based lessons, good practices and recommendations
The evaluation was completed within seven districts of Karamoja sub-region, namely Abim, Kaabong, Kotido, Moroto, Nakapiripirit, Napak, and Amudat districts. A cross-sectional study design with a purposive and random sampling of evaluation sites was used. Both quantitative and qualitative data were collected. Quantitative data collection included semi-structured interviews and data abstraction, whilst qualitative data shall include a desk review, key informant interviews, focus group discussions as well as unobtrusive observations. The analysis assessed changes in the district-level nutritional outcomes. Results were presented graphically in tables, figures, and charts.
