Mind-Blowing Evaluation: Reframe Your Way to Smarter Health Program Management
Session summary: Every day, health program managers make decisions in many areas: programmatic, staffing, fundraising, strategy, partnerships, policy and many others. This session focuses on how using an evaluative and system thinking lens can help program managers be more strategic in their decisions in managing health programs to achieve their desired outcomes. This use of evaluation leads to clear and coherent thinking about links between program activities, stakeholder engagement and health outcomes. Evaluation is not just a judgment about a program; it is a process which can give health managers confidence that their decisions have the best chance of success, and their programs are designed and implemented in the best way possible to cure and keep people healthy over time.
