Design Considerations for Evaluating the Impact of PEPFAR: Workshop Summary
ing. Binagwaho added that the recruitment and training of independent consultants in partner countries is another way to develop competency in evaluation methods that will remain in the country. Country-driven decision making and priority-setting processes were also suggested as potential models or tools for strengthening local evaluative capacity. Binagwaho suggested that the experience of comanaged decision making in Rwanda potentially could be applied to evaluation design. Workshop participant Laura Porter from CDC suggested that a country-driven evaluation priority-setting process—drawn up by a multidisciplinary team—could be another mechanism for building local capacity. She noted that a need for such a process was articulated at a recent meeting of the M&E Reference Group Evaluation Subgroup.
