We bring a strong combined skill set covering strategy and organisational development with monitoring, evaluation and learning. Here are some examples of our work.
Strategic review of the IAS portfolio of non-conference programmes
March - June 2023
We reviewed the porfolio of programmes to help the IAS Governing Council determine whether the collective of programmes is responding to the current needs of the HIV field. We also explored whether new thematic areas require integrating within the portfolio and whether the delivery mechanisms the IAS is currently usingto achieve the impact it seeks are effective, or require changes.
UNAIDS Joint Programme Country Envelopes Evaluation
May 2022 – January 2023
We contributed to the mid-term evaluation of the UNAIDS Joint Programme country envelopes (CEs) 2018-2022. The evaluation was retrospective in assessing the design, implementation and results of CEs, and formative in informing the continued implementation of the 2022-2026 Unified Budget Results and Accountability Framework (UBRAF).
Mid Term Evaluation of the UNAIDS Gender Action Plan
March - June 2021
We carried out a Mid Term Evaluation of the UNAIDS Gender Action Plan 2018-2023. The Evaluation took stock of what has been achieved; assessed what remained relevant and documented notable organisational developments and changes related to the Action Plan. We explored options to achieve the commitments and targets in the remainder of the implementation period.
Strategic Review and theories of change with Healthcare without Harm Europe.
July - October 2022
We carried out a participatory review of the Healthcare without Harm Europe’s 2020-2025 strategic plan. We also helped the team develop an organisational Theory of Change and nested programme Circular Healthcare Theory of Change. Through focused in-person workshops we explored what meaningful change looks like to them and how best they can achieve that change given their unique role in the marketplace.
MEL with the International AIDS Society (IAS)
January - November 2021
We enjoyed working with IAS HIV Programmes and Advocacy colleagues again, to review and develop a team bank of strategic indicators, monitoring tool and MEL guidance. The team are using these tools to support more coherent and systematic analysis and presentation of the varied and meaningful impacts they achieve. Support for this work is ongoing.
MEL with the International Aids Society (IAS)
August 2020 - December 2020
We worked with IAS to strengthen their M&E tools, methods and practices focusing on the Paediatric and Young People portfolio. We designed an evaluation framework and delivered training in Theory of Change, Change Pathways Process, and Results Frameworks. We ran a series of interactive online workshops to ensure alignment with the organisational strategy and to make sure that each team member could locate themselves and their work in the Theory of Change.
Evaluation of UNAIDS Technical Support Mechanism (TSM) Evaluation
December 2019 - March 2020
This evaluation focused on the efficiency and effectiveness of the Technical Support Mechanism and included an in-depth review of organisational practices within the TSM. It was an excellent opportunity to understand key global and regional challenges in meeting Fast Track Targets, as well as positive practice within different HIV thematic areas being experienced in the different regions.
Internal review of the Independent Commission on AID Impact (ICAI), HEART
May - July 2019
This review sought to understand ‘what’ had been achieved in terms of impact, ‘where’ impact had been achieved and learning related to ‘how’ ICAI achieved this. The review report contributed to internal thinking around how to work more efficiently for greater impact and VFM. We also reviewed the Theory of Change to check its alignment with ICAI's mission.
External evaluation for Agence Francaise de Developpement (AfD) funded “Empowerment of users for good-quality HIV Care” Solthis’ project in Sierra Leone
August - December 2018
This project was designed to strengthen primary health care HIV and AIDS service provision while empowering PLWHIV to access these services in and around Freetown, Sierra Leone. We carried out a formative external evaluation to inform the next phase of the project. We gained an in depth understanding of acute levels of stigma and discrimination, as well as poverty-related challenges facing PLWHIV in accessing basic health services.
May - August 2018
This project involved a strategic review and validation of the organisational approach to monitoring, evaluation and impact evaluation. We reviewed the logframe and Theory of Change and ensured congruity with the organisation's mission.
