A GIZ Programme Evaluation Mission, which includes GIZ-internal as well as independent experts, has rated the three-year phase (1st January 2014 to 31st December 2016) of the GIZ Health Sector Programme in Kenya (HSP) as successful. In the assessment, the development effectiveness of the project was evaluated and rated based on the OECD-DAC (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development – Development Assistance Committee) criteria (relevance, effectiveness, impact, efficiency and sustainability) and on the assessment of cooperation management from the perspective of the success factors of GIZ’s Capacity WORKS (a GIZ’s internal competence model for sustainable development). This evaluation and rating are used to provide evidence-based proof of results and to systematically present lessons learned.
These criteria were used to determine the extent of success of the programme in the three focal intervention areas:-
Against a scale of 6 (1 -very successful to 6 -unsuccessful) the programme was rated at 2 as successful.
Stakeholders participating in the Programme Evaluation Debriefing Workshop held on 11th March, 2016, corroborated the results of the evaluation, with many of them hailing the programme for the critical role it has been playing in improving quality of health care as well as working towards universal health coverage and strengthening governance frameworks at county levels to better deliver health care.
