Program delivery is supported by evaluation evidence, and when implemented appropriately can strengthen the effectiveness and efficiency of a program. Without a solid evaluation framework and defined benchmarks in place to measure the effectiveness, efficiency, and value of a program, the methods and theoretical underpinnings would be subjective and lack the basis to assess program quality or improvement. In this session the key components of program evaluation will be presented, including budgeting and resource allocation, and based on their experience, participants will have the opportunity to develop their own evaluation framework.
