Post Health for Peace Initiative in West Africa: end-of-term evaluation

The Post Health for Peace Initiative 2009-2013 was implemented in Senegal, Guinea Bissau and the Gambia.

It followed on from the successful Health for Peace Initiative 2001-2006 initiated by the heads of state of Senegal, Guinea Bissau, The Gambia and Guinea Conakry. It was supported 80 per cent by the European Union and 20 per cent by Sightsavers.

The specific objective of the initiative was to establish comprehensive, good-quality, accessible and affordable eye care services reaching at least 60 per cent of the population in the intervention regions. The primary aim of the end-of-term evaluation was to assess the implementation of project activities against final results, with the aim of assessing the achievements, the processes affecting them, their sustainability, key lessons, the contribution to expected impact and the contribution of multi-country collaboration.
