Final Evaluation of EU-Vietnam Health Sector Capacity Support Project
The objective of this assignment was to evaluate the EU-Vietnam Health Sector Capacity Support Project (HSCSP). The latter is the European Union's contribution to strengthening the institutional capacity for the good governance in the health sector and for improved health service delivery in Vietnam. This project assisted government-owned reforms towards sector-wide management, paving the way to a programme-based approach for cooperation between the Ministry of Health, the EU and other interested development partners. The Project focused on the design and testing of tools and systems for the Ministry of Health and provincial Departments of Health (DoH) of three pilot provinces being, Bac Giang, Bac Ninh, and Ha Nam. In addition, the Project aimed at supporting information exchange to fifteen additional partnering provinces.
The final evaluation provided the decision-makers in the Government of Vietnam, the relevant external co-operation services of the European Commission and the wider public with sufficient information to:
a) make an overall independent assessment about the past performance of the project/ programme, paying particularly attention to the impact of the project actions against its objectives; and
b) identify key lessons and to propose practical recommendations for follow-up actions.
