This assignment is part of the Health Advisory Services – HAS project (EUR 1.999.715,00, 10/2014-10/2017, managed by the hera consortium). Its identification number within the HAS is HAS 056.
The HAS provides technical support to the European Commission (DEVCO/HQ) and the EU Delegations for a period of three years. DG DEVCO contracted the HAS to support the implementation of its health aid policies and programmes; strengthen the capacity of EU Delegations and DEVCO/HQ; and tackle other issues for which in-house thematic capacity is lacking or insufficient.
The HAS was requested to contribute to the development of guidelines for EUD staff regarding the design of EU education and nutrition country support programmes with well formulated and feasible goals in terms of education and nutritional outcomes and with evidence-based interventions.
