Introducing evaluation story submission #1

In the lead-up to EvalYear 2015 we will  preview each of the 10 submissions selected from our International Call for Evaluations that Make a Difference. Previews will be posted every few days and in random order.

Today’s submission is from Papua New Guinea and describes the impact of the evaluation of the Childbirth Emergency Phone Project. The project has a toll-free phone number for rural health workers to call to obtain real-time advice from hospital staff during time-critical medical emergencies, particularly birthing complications.

The evaluation demonstrated that the project was preventing maternal and neonatal deaths which directly led to sustainable project funding, thus saving more lives.

To learn more about how and why this evaluation ‘made a difference’ you can download the original submission. Childbirth-emergency-phone_Papua-New-Guinea

All 10 submissions are currently being developed into engaging stories and will be published in English, Spanish and French during EvalYear 2015.
