Capturing Learning in Global Health: Reflections from Itad’s Health Portfolio

Itad leads a dynamic and exciting portfolio of Monitoring, Evaluation, Research and Learning (MERL) work for global health, spanning the globe.


Through our work as learning partners with key development funders and implementers, we have been directly putting results into impact. In the past 5 years, Itad health theme’s portfolio has grown from programme-specific evaluations into four main areas:

  • Adolescent sexual and reproductive health (ASRH): Itad is leading a multi-component evaluation Adolescents 360, a multi-disciplinary approach to designing ASRH interventions using Human-Centred Design
  • Strategic reviews: we provide strategic advice and MERL services to various donors and organisations, including leading UN agencies, the Global Fund and others
  • Health Systems Strengthening: Itad is leading on evaluations of Health Systems Strengthening, supporting the global movement toward achieving Universal Health Care
  • Global Health Security: we are leading the evaluation of the Fleming Fund, funded by the UK’s Department of Health, as part of the UK’s work on global health security

We invited friends and colleagues of the health theme at Itad to join us for an afternoon of sharing and celebrating our work getting results into development, reflecting on our insights so far on capturing learning for better development results in global health.

This was the programme on the day:

World café: 3 – 4 pm
Come and meet our team members and technical specialists and talk through our work and implications for MERL in global health.
Registration with tea and coffee from 2.45 onwards

Panel discussion: 4 – 5 pm
Development practitioners need to capture learning from results to development better, but how can we do that well, and at scale? How can we learn from innovation and capture our learning for wide impact? Come and join us for an engaging discussion on what we have learnt so far.

Drinks and reception 5 – 6 pm
We will end the day with a few drinks and nibbles. This will be an opportunity for more informal conversations among practitioners as well as to celebrate our achievements to date!
