The IHSN and the ADP are being evaluated by Oxford Policy Management Ltd, a United Kingdom based consulting firm. The evaluation started at the beginning of January and will provide its final recommendations by the end of August this year (2013). It is now time to take stock of what we have achieved so far and where the programs should go from here.

The main objectives of the evaluation are to assess the impact, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability of both the IHSN and ADP; to assess their relevance in the context of the statistical capacity development agenda; and to provide guidance on how the programs could be strengthened and improved in the future.

It is very important for the future of these programs that each of us reflect with the evaluators on the present and past activities and processes, as well as prospects for the future. We would like to encourage everyone with an interest in IHSN and the ADP to provide feedback and your ideas for the future. Please feel free to provide your feedback to the evaluators at: Shortly, we will also post a link to a brief online survey on this website and would like to encourage you to respond - it will only take about 5 minutes of your time.

We are looking forward to your contribution to the evaluation and to your involvement in the future of the IHSN and ADP.
