Evaluation of Plans and Programmes of the Department of Family Health

The evaluation looked into the effects and results as well as to which degree defined objectives of the plans and programmes were reached.

The assignment was twofold; the first part consisted of an independent performance evaluation of the plans and programmes; an analysis of the interrelations between the various plans and programmes, including looking at strengths, weaknesses and lessons learnt in order to improve future programmes; whereas the second part consisted of formulating conclusions that would contribute to defining the principles of a consolidated plan for reducing maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality for the the period 2016 – 2020. The new plan will be a part of the National Plan for Economic and Social Development, the National Health Plan 2011 – 2020, the Sustainable Development Goals, as well as the International Conference for Population and Development.
