Rwanda's Improved Services for Vulnerable Populations Project: Initial Data Collection Report for an Impact Evaluation Abstract:

Although Rwanda has achieved great progress in economic growth, poverty reduction, and HIV prevention over the past decade, significant challenges to health and development remain. Vulnerable populations, such as people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHA), out-of-school youth, very poor or female-headed households, and orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) face challenges with respect to health, education, and economic stability. The Improved Services for Vulnerable Populations (ISVP) project, known locally as Twiyubake, aims to strengthen the capacity of target populations and communities to improve their health, nutrition, and well-being; OVC, PLHA, and economically vulnerable families are a particular program focus. The ISVP project is led by Global Communities, along with local nongovernmental organizations, Rwandan civil society organizations, and the Ministries of Health and Gender and Family Promotion and supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Rwanda Mission.

The USAID-funded MEASURE Evaluation, led by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with support from USAID/Rwanda, and in collaboration with the National University of Rwanda, College of Medicine and Health Sciences and School of Public Health, and Incisive Africa is conducting an impact evaluation of the ISVP project. The ISVP impact evaluation seeks to measure the impact of theTwiyubake interventions on the health, education, and economic well-being of vulnerable children and their families. This report shares results from the 2017 survey to establish initial indicators for background characteristics, primary and secondary outcomes, and exposure to project or similar interventions in both the program and control groups.
