Reproductive Health and Maternity Services Unit Monitoring and Evaluation Capacity: End Line Assessment Report Abstract:

MEASURE Evaluation PIMA (MEval-PIMA) is a project funded by the United States Agency for International Development that seeks to strengthen the capacity of Kenya’s Ministry of Health (MOH) and its counterparts to identify and use quality data for everyday decision making.

As part of the project closeout, MEval-PIMA conducted an end-of-project assessment to document achievements and lessons from efforts to strengthen the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) capacity of the Ministry of Health (MOH), provide data demand and use information for decision making, and communicate and share the project legacy with stakeholders and beneficiaries.

This report focuses on the assessment of the Reproductive Health and Maternity Services Unit (RHMSU)The role of the RHMSU is to coordinate the development of strategies, provide technical support for the implementation of activities aimed at achieving the national reproductive health goals, and monitor and evaluate progress and achievements. Capacity strengthening for M&E is essential to enable RHMSU to perform its M&E functions as part of sector-wide efforts to improve MOH M&E systems in Kenya.

The end line assessment was conducted in a workshop setting using three participatory methods and an individual capacity assessment. Respondents for this exercise were program managers and program officers, including RHMSU M&E officers and data managers.

This report details the process and results for the end line assessment related to the M&E capacity of the RHMSU, and it compares baseline and end line M&E capacity. It concludes with an account of lessons learned and recommendations for the RHMSU, moving forward.
