FEVE: Evaluation of phase 3 in the form of a peer review

As part of the implementation of the third phase of the Frontiers and Vulnerabilities to HIV in West Africa (FEVE 3) project, a mid-term evaluation was conducted in the form of a peer review. An original and innovative strategy, the implementation of the mid-term review required a pilot phase in three (03) of the (09) programme countries. During this phase, a methodology was proposed, tested and finalised.

This pilot phase was coordinated by the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (MAEE) and ARTEMIS. It involved the regional coordination team of Enda Santé and SANA, as well as all the actors of the nine (09) countries. At the end of the pilot phase, which took place between December 2017 and October 2018, the regional coordination of Enda Santé and SANA, in collaboration with the MAEE, is coordinating the replication phase of the MTR exercise, in order to cover the remaining six (06) countries.

Thus, as part of the replication of the Peer Review, a training workshop for future peers was organised on 16 and 17 January 2019 in Ziguinchor. During this meeting, two general objectives were discussed: to increase the number of trained peers and to prepare the country teams to host review missions.

Specifically, this will involve :

  • Share the review methodology (from preparation to country report): evaluation framework, evaluation criteria, indicators, reports, missions, etc.
  • Sharing the toolbox for a good appropriation by all participants
  • Prepare country missions and next steps

Chaired by Ms Natacha GOMES, representing the Luxembourg Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, the workshop was a great moment of exchange and mutual capacity building. The sharing of experiences of the peers from the pilot phase, who made up the workshop's facilitation team, ensured a participatory and dynamic workshop during which role plays, presentations and group work followed one another.
