Using a mixed methods approach to assess changes and the inclusivity of SRHR programming

Marginalized and hard to reach populations, such as the poor, youth, and people living with disabilities, often experience significant difficulties in accessing quality integrated and inclusive family planning and SRHR services.

A program aiming to address this gap, the Women’s Integrated Sexual Health, or WISH, program, was implemented from 2018-2021. As part of the consortium implementing Lot2 (WISH2ACTION) of the WISH program, Humanity & Inclusion (HI) supported its consortium partners in ensuring SRHR services were actively made inclusive to people with disabilities.

ResultsinHealth conducted the end-line evaluation of HI’s activities in two countries - Uganda and South Sudan - to assess (the sustainability of) the changes brought about by the intervention and the inclusivity of SRHR programming. 

Due to the complex nature of the program and the challenges of COVID-19, the team adopted a mixed method approach, considering both intended and unintended outcomes. Using inclusive and participative methods such as Focus Group Discussions and the collection of Stories of Change, the evaluation aimed to create ownership and facilitate a dialogue of learning.

We worked on the evaluation with much dedication and are proud to have received positive feedback from our contact at Humanity & Inclusion:
“It is with much enthusiasm that I recommend RiH for projects requiring monitoring, evaluation and learning expertise. In their task execution, RiH exhibited strong commitment and hard work to the assignment, adhered to the timelines and was flexible during data collection in COVID-19 pandemic period as well as in addressing feedback from HI”.
