TMG carried out the mid-term review of the NUMAT program to determine whether or not NUMAT was on track to achieve its objectives within the existing time frame and funding parameters, and to ascertain if any changes in program or management strategies were needed for the remaining two years of the project.
The portion of the review to determine whether those changes in the program or management strategies were needed in the final two years of the project would increase its impact in Northern Uganda, in light of the changing political and social context. TMG conducted a review that was broad-ranging, covering questions of the NUMAT program’s overall programmatic effectiveness, whether it was addressing capacity-building and sustainability issues in the dynamic environment of Northern Uganda, and if it was effectively improving coordination and partnership. The review was conducted in four districts (Gulu, Pader, Lira, and Oyam), which were specifically selected from the list of nine NUMAT districts based on sub-regional representativeness. The study population included USAID staff, NUMAT staff, District Local Government officials, key civil society partners, and beneficiaries for both health facility based and community based services. The review team used largely qualitative methods of data collection of obtain information.
