POSTER: The Advocacy for Better Health Project is a five-year initiative
(June 2014–May 2019) funded by the US Agency for International
Development (USAID) with an estimated budget of US$20 million. The
project’s goal is to improve the quality, accessibility, and availability of
health and other social services by enhancing the capacity of citizens
and civil society organizations (CSOs) to advocate effectively. The
focus is on advocacy for increased investment and accountability by
decision-makers in order to improve the quality and availability of
essential health and social services in 35 target districts in Uganda.
PATH includes robust monitoring and evaluation in every effort. To
that end, the Advocacy for Better Health team needed an evidence based
approach to evaluate progress toward project goals. First, they
developed a theory of change and results framework to define a clear
link between intermediate results and the overall goal. Building on
these tools, they developed appropriate and data-based indicators to
assess progress and success.
