Evaluating integrated health programs: An example from Nigeria
Data for Impact hosted a one-hour webinar on evaluating integrated health programs. The webinar was led by Data for Impact’s Siân Curtis, PhD, and Jessica Fehringer, PhD.
Evaluating integrated health programs raises several methodological challenges. In this webinar, presenters described the design of an evaluation of an integrated health program in Nigeria as a case study of these challenges and how they were addressed in a complex real-world evaluation. We also discussed the experiences and lessons learned from implementing the evaluation.
