Evaluation of Global Fund Single Stream Funding Grant in Nigeria
2012-2013; Nigeria; National Agency for the Control of AIDS, Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria
Nigeria is currently implementing a Single Stream Funding Grant of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, for which the National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA) is a Principal Recipient, along with four other organisations.
NACA, in collaboration with the four other Principal Recipients, requires an evaluation which reviews the existing performance and outcome and impact indicators of Global Fund HIV programmes in Nigeria. Itad is undertaking this evaluation which aims to assess the intended and unintended changes brought about by Global Fund supported projects, and help model what actually happened as a result of the interventions, and what might have happened in the absence of the interventions.
Itad’s approach is theory-based, drawing on the Theory of Change, practical data collection tools and a selection of evaluation experts. The evaluation uses a mixed methods approach including quantitative and qualitative data collection. The quantitative data collection is being led by ORB International (Itad’s partner on the assignment) and includes large scale surveys of facility based providers and beneficiary groups. The qualitative data collection includes in depth literature reviews, face-to-face interviews, discussion groups, site visits and observation, telephone interviews and workshop sessions. The final report is due in the first quarter of 2013.Image © Work in progress: High hopes for health in Nigeria. Photo Credit: Lindsay Mgbor, DFID
