Many countries opt to evaluate their health system strengthening (HSS) grants on a regular basis. The purpose of this is to learn what works well and what does not, with the aim of improving future HSS support. Some of these evaluations are led by the countries themselves, while others are managed by the Gavi Secretariat.
Country-led evaluations are fully managed by each country. The country leads the development of the terms of reference, procures the evaluation and manages the evaluation process. Support from Alliance partners and the Gavi Secretariat is available on request.
Gavi-led evaluations are managed by the Gavi Secretariat. This means that the Secretariat leads the development of the terms of reference, procures and funds the evaluation and manages the evaluation teams, all in close collaboration with the country.
