We are excited to present the final report of the midterm evaluation of the Strategic Action Plan on Polio Transition 2018-2023 commissioned by WHO.
EHG has been working on this evaluation since October 2021 with substantive engagement of in-house staff and external consultants. The objective of this formative evaluation was to assess the status of implementation of the Strategic Action Plan and to propose any modifications needed to adapt to the changing context. The evaluation focused on progress across the 20 polio transition priority countries and further investigated progress at the regional and global levels. The evaluation:
(a) documented key achievements, best practices, challenges, gaps, and areas for improvement in the design and implementation of the Strategic Action Plan;
(b) identified the key contextual factors and changes in the global public health realm that have affected the development and implementation of the Strategic Action Plan and the roadmap developed in 2018; and
(c) made recommendations as appropriate on the way forward to enable the successful implementation of the plan.
The final report of the is now publicly available on the WHO website and the Executive Summary of this evaluation report will be presented to the Seventy-fifth World Health Assembly in May 2022.
