2.1 Emmanuella Baguma, Programme Officer, Evaluation, presented this item to the
Committee (Doc 02) highlighting the process leading to the submission of this
proposal and providing information in relation to the key evaluation themes
namely urban immunisation, private sector and leadership, management and
coordination.

Discussion

? EAC members provided a number of comments in relation to the proposal, with
some members noting in particular that they would have found it useful if the data
analysis component had been described in better detail.

? There was lack of clarity on how the mixed methods had been balanced out and it
was also unclear as to how the sample size for the household survey had been
arrived at. The Secretariat noted in relation to the latter that the team wanted to
leverage some of the work carried out during Phase 1 of the Full Country
Evaluations (F CE) project and that they would be asked to build this out more
specifically in light of input from EAC members.

? EAC members agreed that DTP1 should be included in the outcomes.

? It was suggested that it would be good to link how the evaluation fits into or could
learn from ongoing activities in Bangladesh, Mozambique and Zambia. The
