General HSS evaluations and meta-reviews
In order to determine best practice, we have commissioned a variety of evaluations of our HSS grant window. We have also commissioned “meta-reviews”, which combine the results of multiple country evaluations to increase the level of learning in-country as well as across countries and regions.
REVIEW OF GAVI’S HEALTH SYSTEMS STRENGTHENING (HSS) SUPPORT 2019
This report presents the main findings from a review of Gavi’s health systems strengthening (HSS) support to countries. This review was conducted by Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute in 2018. The objectives of the review were to:
- Assess how Gavi’s HSS support contributes to increasing immunisation coverage and equity, strengthening health systems to deliver integrated primary health care, improving sustainability of national immunisation programs.
- Identify elements available to learn from recent experience and establish recommendations regarding the relevance and feasibility of future HSS evaluations.
The review assessed the design, implementation and results of HSS grants. Its findings will provide important evidence for the review of Gavi’s funding policies and related processes in preparation for its 2021-2025 strategy and will inform the design of potential future evaluations of Gavi’s HSS.
