Aimed at reviewing the progress of RMNCAH, the Short Programme Review (SPR) is an evidence-based evaluation to help assess and readjust the programme/policy course at the national and sub-national levels to achieve goals and objectives, wherein data is available on programme implementation and delivery. It also entails identifying the problems faced by the programme and suggesting recommendations on the next action steps.
We as programme partners conducted various activities to facilitate progress in this direction.
- Study existing WHO modules on Short Programme Review (SPR) to improve RMNCAH
- Conduct a literature review and review the SEAR country documents on programme review in the RMNCAH area
- Propose a framework for a Short Programme Review (SPR)
- Conduct virtual consultations with experts identified by WHO SEARO in-country offices
- Adapt SPR-Child health to include missing areas of RMNCAH and develop guides, necessary worksheets, and handouts for SPR-RMNCAH
- Pilot the drafted documents in at least one regional setting in consultation with WHO SEARO
- Incorporate the findings of the pilot and submit the edited, designed and print-ready document to WHO SEARO
