Detailed description Back

Systematic and timely evaluation of its programmes and activities is an established priority of the European Commission. The focus of evaluations is on the assessment of achievements, the quality and the results of Interventions in the context of an evolving cooperation policy with an increasing emphasis on result-oriented approaches and the contribution towards the implementation of the SDGs.

From this perspective, evaluations should look for evidence of why, whether or how these results are linked to the EU intervention and seek to identify the factors driving or hindering progress.
Evaluations should provide an understanding of the cause and effect links among: inputs and activities, and outputs, outcomes and impacts. Evaluations should serve accountability, decision making, learning and management purposes.

The main objectives of this evaluation are to provide the relevant services of the European Union, the interested stakeholders and the Government of Mozambique, with:

  • an overall independent assessment of the past performance of the upgrading of the Manhiça and Gilé District Hospitals (phase II), paying particular attention to its results measured against its expected objectives; and the reasons underpinning such results;
  • key lessons learned, conclusions and related recommendations in order to improve future Interventions.

In particular, this evaluation will serve to understand the performance of the Action, its enabling factors and those hampering a proper delivery of results to assist in the planning of any other future EU interventions in the health/infrastructure sectors. The main users of this evaluation will be the EU Delegation to Mozambique, the National Authorising Officer (NAO) and the Ministry of Health (MISAU).
