Health and Nutrition evaluation guidelines

The Inter-agency Health and Nutrition (IHE) Initiative, comprised of a broad range of NGOs, UN agencies, CDC, donors and academic institutions, has produced their first version of IHE Evaluation Guidelines. The guidelines outline a process for commissioning and managing inter-agency health and nutrition evaluations, as well as provide an evaluative framework for these types of evaluations. The aim of these evaluations is to analyse the overall performance of the health and nutrition sector, and the impact of interventions on the health of crisis affected populations.

This is the first version of these guidelines, based on experience gained during the six IHE evaluations done so far and feedback received on earlier draft versions. It is hoped that these guidelines will stimulate more inter-agency evaluations in the health sector. Ongoing discussions are planned within the health cluster, to see how such evaluations can complement assessment and monitoring processes.

For more information, please contact Olga Bornemisza at olga.bornemisza@lshtm.ac.uk

To see copies of the evaluations done so far, see http://www.unhcr.org/doclist/research/3b8a2e3de.html and search for IHE.
