Zimbabwe MCHIP Evaluation

Zimbabwe MCHIP Evaluation

The Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP) was the USAID global flagship maternal and child health program implemented by a consortium of US-Based NGOs. TMG conducted an end-of-project evaluation of the MCHIP-AA. It informed decision-making and guiding the design and implementation of the new MNCH activity being designed by USAID; informed the design and implementation of future PMI-supported malaria community case management (MCCM) activities that are currently part of the MCHIP AA community approach; highlighted areas where village health workers (VHWs) need additional training or support to deliver quality community health services; and helped to identify successful community health service delivery and quality improvement approaches. The evaluation methodology used a combination of quantitative and qualitative techniques, including: a focused document review; VHW knowledge survey; a practical skills assessment; separate focus group discussions with VHWs, their clients and health center committee members; and key informant interviews in Harare and Manicaland province. Secondary data was examined using the national Health management Information System (HMIS), the community HMIS, and VHW registers and program reports.

Zimbabwe IFPS Evaluation

Zimbabwe IFPS Evaluation

Improving Family Planning Services (IFPS) is a five-year project implemented by Population Services Zimbabwe (PSZ), a Zimbabwean non-governmental organization (NGO) affiliate member of Marie Stopes International (MSI). IFPS has two main objectives: 1) Increase the awareness of voluntary FP methods, particularly LAPMs by 20% from 17% among underserved women and men aged 15-49 years in all provinces by 2017; and 2) Provide comprehensive voluntary FP serves to 589,506 poor and underserved women and men aged 15-49 through mobile clinical outreach and a social franchising network in all provinces by 2017.

TMG conducted an evaluation of IFPS to present the findings, conclusions and recommendations. Lessons from the evaluation helped inform efforts to fine tune and improve on the current activity that will end in September, 2017 and design new activities for improved effectiveness and efficiency towards reaching USAID/Zimbabwe’s FP objectives. TMG employed a variety of quantitative and qualitative primary data collection methods as well as a de-tailed review of available secondary data to generate the evidence required to answer the evaluation questions adequately. The evaluation team interviewed relevant individuals from the list of key stakeholders, who were identified in discussions with the PSZ team and USAID/Zimbabwe. The team also conducted 12 Focus Group Discussions with clients and non-users, visited BlueStar social franchise facilities, observed mobile outreach sessions, interviewed with healthcare providers, and reviewed client records and statistics.

Tanzania Affordable Private Schools (APS) Assessment

Tanzania Affordable Private Schools (APS) Assessment

TMG conducted this assessment in Tanzania to obtain information tailored for designing a pilot program on supporting the private basic education sector. It had six objectives: identifying the various players investing in the private basic education sector and their needs in targeted areas determined by the Mission; identifying local business development service (BDS) firms that, with capacity building if needed, could provide training to private school proprietors; identifying the unique responsibilities and assessing the capacities of each participating partner in the pilot, including BDS providers, financial institutions, private school associations and alliances, and ministries of education; providing the Mission with lessons learned and best practices from Ghana and other applicable projects, a list of key references on private schools in Tanzania; providing the Mission with the estimated cost of implementation; and providing the Mission with design options and recommendations. The Assessment built upon the current mission education assistance objective that focused on early primary grade levels in Zanzibar and Mtwara. TMG also conducted a meta-analysis case study, which explored the range of educational levels and areas in which the private sector in Tanzania was active and looked more broadly at the privatization of education in Tanzania/Zanzibar so that the meta-analysis information, along with the assessment data, provided the Mission with a good context in which to ground its upcoming private school pilot.

Final Evaluation of USAID/Indonesia Managing Basic Education (MBE) Developing Local Government Capacity Project

Final Evaluation of USAID/Indonesia Managing Basic Education (MBE) Developing Local Government Capacity Project

TMG evaluated the overall results and impact of the MBE program, including the project’s strengths and weaknesses, implementation mechanisms and lessons learned and explored approaches and strategies for continued support of successful elements after its completion by linking it with the Government of Indonesia (GOI), USAID’s on-going DBE program, and/or other implementers. TMG’s evaluation team used four basic methods to obtain its findings, including: reviewing of project documents; observation of MBE-assisted, non-MBE-assisted, and DBE assisted schools, principals, teachers and other educators; targeted questions and interviews with individuals and officials knowledgeable about the MBE and DBE projects; and targeted questions in focus group discussions with single and mixed groups of stakeholders.
