Final Evaluation of Strengthening Integrated Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR/HIV) and Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) Services in East and Southern Africa (ESA) to Accelerate Action on Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 3 And 5 Programme

Final Report


This evaluation considers the 2gether 4 SRHR programme, a regional joint UN programme that combines contributions of four UN agencies; UNAIDS, UNFPA, UNICEF, and WHO. The overall vision of the programme is that all people, particularly adolescent girls, young people and key populations in East and Southern Africa are empowered and supported to exercise their SRH rights and access quality integrated SRHR/HIV and SGBV services so that they enjoy a healthy life. The evaluation’s objective was to assess the relevance, coherence, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability of the programme and to assess its progress. Among others, the conclusions of the evaluation were: • The programme was well aligned to strategic plans and priorities of RECs, countries and participating UN agencies; • The programme has significantly contributed to the Delivering as One (DaO) principle through joint planning, collaboration and coordination with UN and non-UN stakeholders; there are, however, structural barriers that prevent UN agencies from further DaO contribution; • The programme significantly contributed to advancing integration of SRHR/HIV and SGBV across the East and South African (ESA) countries.
