This report presents the main findings from an evaluation of Gavi’s support to CSOs (civil society organisations) during the period 2011 to 2017. The evaluation was conducted by Itad in 2018.
The evaluation assesses the overall relevance, efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of the Gavi CSO Platform model as well as of Gavi’s support to CSOs through country Health System Strengthening (HSS) grants – jointly referred to as the “Gavi CSO Model”.
The primary purpose of the evaluation is learning and the evaluation findings and recommendations are informing decisions on how Gavi engages with CSOs during the current as well as the next Gavi Strategy. The evaluation also provides evidence on the degree to which Gavi’s support to CSOs has been efficient and effective, which is critical to guide Gavi’s future approach to engaging with CSOs in a manner that best contributes to the Gavi mission.
