Narrative description of project:
The “Institutional Support for the Private-Not-For-Profit (PNFP) Health Sub-Sector to Promote Universal Health Coverage in Uganda” was formulated in 2013 and its implementation started in 2014. The Project’s general objective is to contribute to strengthen service delivery capacity at district level to effectively implement Primary Health Care (PHC) activities and deliver the Uganda National Minimum Health Care Package (UNMHCP) to the population. Its specific objective is to increase PNFP outputs and patients’ accessibility to quality health care through a strengthened Ministry of Health (MoH)/PNFP partnership with regards to the financial, human resources and functional aspects of the Ugandan health system. The Project’s budget is Euro 8 million for 4 years.
The objective of the mid-term review of the Project is to provide answers to ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions that are essential for assessing the value of the results achieved and of the whole of the implementation process of an intervention”. The functions of the mid-term review are threefold: (1) to support steering (strategic and operational decision making); to contribute to learning (by explaining what works or not, and why); and accountability by supplying an external assessment of the progress made and the results achieved. Additional specific realistic evaluation questions mainly pertain to the verification of the hypothesis (assumptions) underlying the logic of intervention.
