EVAL-HEALTH (Developing and Testing of New Methodologies to Monitor and Evaluate Health Related EU-Funded Interventions in Cooperation Partner Countries) has been an R&D project funded by the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Commission which had as its main goal to contribute to strengthen monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of European Union (EU) funded interventions in developing countries in the specific area of Health.

These new methodologies should improve the monitoring and evaluation of EU-funded programmes and projects, thus helping EC decision makers and development partner countries the measurement of the success of implemented activities. They should also provide more and better evidence of the effects of EC health aid policies in developing countries together with better knowledge about the types of policies and programmes that are more successful thus improving future practices. The total aid to health from EU institutions in the period 2008-09 was 608,4 USD million, representing the 6% of the total EU Official Development Assistance (ODA) [OECD Aid to health, December 2011].

EVAL-HEALTH was planned as a 46 month R&D project, with 9 participants from Spain, Portugal, UK, The Netherlands, South Africa, Nigeria, Thailand, India and Colombia. 

The consortium has received technical support from external international experts in areas of public health research, monitoring and evaluation and developmental aid.
