MDGi project, mid-term evaluation (2017)
A mid-term study into the EU-funded MDGi health project in Lusaka and Copperbelt provinces
The evaluation team concluded that the MDGi Programme is a highly ambitious and comprehensive programme which is extremely relevant to the RMNCH&N needs of Zambia. However, this €50 million programme was slightly over-ambitious given its timescale, something which has already necessitated a programme extension. The programme, which because of its sheer size may of course produce some economies of scale, seems rather unwieldy from a management point of view, due to both complexity and financial volume. However, UNICEF has shown to be capable of managing the programme as a fund holder and MoH has shown strong leadership and ownership.
