This report is the product of a summative evaluation of the “Project for Advancing Peace through Enhanced Maternal and Child Healthcare in Conflict-Prone Regions”, supported by the Government of Japan and implemented in 2014-2017. The evaluation was conducted in connection with the coming to the end of this Project in 2017, in order to determine progress made with Project implementation, and to document the results (primarily changes in the quality of healthcare services provided to pregnant women, women giving birth, newborns and children under five years of age in the pilot hospitals).
The evaluation of UNICEF’s “Project for Advancing Peace through Enhanced Maternal and Child Healthcare in Conflict-Prone Regions” revealed the relevance of the aims and measures with regard to national priorities, the requirements of healthcare in practice, and the needs of mothers and children in the pilot regions. Analysis of the data collected showed that the Project satisfied the criteria of “relevance”, “effectiveness”, “impact” and “sustainability”.
