Methodology The evaluation approach will thus structured around the following activities: – Technical meeting at the AUC involving key stakeholders, to validate the methodology and tools for data and information collection; – Send data collection tools to members States and to partners for filling and collection of data on indicators. – Invitation of selected Member States to discuss the relevance of selected indicators, measurement and difficulties of providing information in real time; – Analysis of data and information; – Draft the evaluation report; – Validation workshop to finalize report; – Translation and submission of the report to the relevant stakeholders

11 4. Methodology Sampling After analyzing the mid-term evaluation reports, it will be selected in the five African regions, 10 countries including five which have the highest levels of key indicators and 5 which have the worst levels of the indicators. The countries representatives of the selected countries will be invited to AUC to discuss the main issues related to the implementation of the policy documents in their respective countries, strengths and weaknesses. Moreover, the discussions will also address the challenges of availability and sharing of information on key health indicators to enable monitoring to achieve the Abuja Call.

12 4. Methodology Data collection tools TechniqueTools Mixed: Quanti - Qualitative Questionnaire for country indicators Qualitative Guide for group discussion with partners Guide for discussion with representatives of countries invited to the meeting to exchange with the AUC or by telephone interview, Skype etc...

13 4. Methodology Data analysis Data analysis will be done at three levels. The first level will be to analyze the relevance of policy documents from an approach based on the qualitative analysis of the situational analysis of health in Africa and the framework of these documents. Regarding effectiveness in the implementation of the policy documents, the analysis will be based on the measurement of the level reached by the different Member States for the main indicators used in their monitoring and evaluation plan. In a third step, an contained analysis will be made on qualitative information gathered from key stakeholders (partners and representatives of the countries)
