Advancing Healthy Communities in East Africa: end-of-term evaluation

The Advancing Healthy Communities programme aimed to develop a mid-level eye care workforce to increase access to eye health services and to reduce the cataract surgical backlog in Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.

The end-of-programme evaluation addressed the following:

  • Establishing to what extent the programme has helped to improve eye health and prevent avoidable blindness by developing mid-level eye health professionals and improving the quality and quantity of cataract and other eye care services.
  • Measuring to what extent the programme has delivered outputs and attained outcomes.
  • Measuring cross-country learning and initiatives that have provided added value to the regional structure.
