Ethiopia -Supporting a government-led evaluation of multi-sectorial nutrition program in Ethiopia

The Government of Ethiopia (GOE) is committed to reaching a target of zero childhood stunting and zero household food insecurity by 2030 – two of eight nutrition and food security goals set in the GOE's Seqota Declaration (SD).  Under the SD Implementation Plan, the first three years are the Innovation Phase during which intensive efforts will be made in 31 pilot woredas in Tigray and Amahara.  Key strategies include intensive implementation of a full complement of interventions led by Health, Agriculture, Livestock, Water, Social Protection, and Education sectors at woreda level and improved multi-sectorial coordination at federal and regional levels.

The Institute for International Programs at Johns Hopkins University (IIP-JHU)  is providing technical assistance (TA) to the Ethiopian Public Health Institute (EPHI) between 2017-2020 to implement a high-quality evaluation of the Innovation Phase while intentionally strengthening their institutional capacity to more independently lead future large-scale evaluations.  The proposed evaluation design includes a) baseline (Q1/Q2 2018) and endline (Q1/Q2 2021) household and front-line worker "quality of delivery" surveys ; b) a government-led routine monitoring system and c) targeted implementation research at midterm.
