Children for Health Partners

We love our partners to have relationships with government programmes and be reaching (or aim to be reaching) large numbers of children and families. We also like our partners to have a robust monitoring and evaluation framework so we can track our progress easily and revise or pivot if we need to.

Since our beginnings in 2013, we have provided a lot of different types of services to several partners. We have drawn up a list of these below. In most cases we have been involved in at least three of the stages to a greater or lesser extent and it usually depends on two things:

  1. The budget! and
  2. The capacity of those seeking to implement the programmes.

1.  Situational analysis

  • Investigation of drivers for early adolescent behaviour change and development.
  • Developing assessment tools – for example visual tools.
  • Assessing existing strategies and health education curriculum for ‘what works’.
  • Scoping existing systems & resources.
  • Understanding sustainable delivery options at a national level.

Working with young adolescents in Mozambique was an important part of the situational analysis.
