Evaluation of Health Programs: A Postgraduate Overview Course

Curriculum Cover Image

As countries seek to improve their monitoring and evaluation (M&E) capacities, there is a need for specific training in evaluation at the postgraduate level. Recognizing this need, the GEMNet-Health Steering Committee has convened technical expert groups to generate resources that will facilitate development of a consistent and coordinated approach to evaluation training.

As part of an effort to strengthen postgraduate education on evaluation of health programs, the Global Evaluation and Monitoring Network for Health (GEMNet-Health) and MEASURE Evaluation have embarked on developing competency-based curriculum materials for a master’s degree level, overview course on evaluation.

The modular curriculum materials are presented here, along with a summary of the curriculum development approach followed.

The Postgraduate Evaluation Curriculum resources include:

  • Evaluation of Health Programs: A Postgraduate Overview Course – Postgraduate Evaluation Curriculum, which is available in PDF format.

  • Evaluation of Health Programs: A Postgraduate Overview Course – Module 1 Syllabus: Evaluation as a Strategic Tool for Public Programs and Policies, which is available in PDF format.
