The Institute for International Programs at Johns Hopkins University (IIP-JHU) has been funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada (DFATD) to develop and test tools to evaluate the effectiveness of programs to improve women's and children's health and nutrition. This project, called Real Accountability: Data and Analysis for Results (RADAR) is supporting the development of tools to evaluate the effectiveness and impact of health and nutrition programs so that they can be used across all DFATD-funded maternal, neonatal, and child health and nutrition (MNCH&N) projects. The project involves tools to assess coverage, implementation strength, and quality of care and assist implementers with selecting interventions with the most impact and that address the impact pathway. Tools will be implemented in multiple DFATD focus countries and there will be a focus on learning from implementation so that tools can be improved and made flexible enough to be implemented in a variety of settings. This placement is to work on early implementation and learning of the implementation strength and quality of care tools. Link to website for more details!
