- What is the relevance of the Abuja Call in the fight against the priority
diseases?
- What is the efficiency in the implementation of the Abuja Call in the 5
African regions?
- The expected outcomes were they produced? There were any unexpected

4. Methodology
• Conducted by the Department of Social Affairs of the African
Union Commission (AUC)
• The approach to be adopted is based primarily on the analysis
of policy documents and commitment of the Member States,
the monitoring and evaluation Plan, activity reports, the midterm reports and any other documents relating to the
implementation
4. Methodology
The evaluation approach will thus structured around the
following activities:
– Technical meeting at the AUC involving key stakeholders,
to validate the methodology and tools for data and
information collection;
– Send data collection tools to members States and to
partners for filling and collection of data on indicators.
– Invitation of selected Member States to discuss the
relevance of selected indicators, measurement and
difficulties of providing information in real time;
– Analysis of data and information;
– Draft the evaluation report;
– Validation workshop to finalize report;
– Translation and submission of the report to the relevant
stakeholders
4. Methodology
Sampling
• After analyzing the mid-term evaluation reports, it will be
selected in the five African regions, 10 countries including five
which have the highest levels of key indicators and 5 which
have the worst levels of the indicators. The countries
representatives of the selected countries will be invited to
AUC to discuss the main issues related to the implementation
of the policy documents in their respective countries,
strengths and weaknesses.
• Moreover, the discussions will also address the challenges of
availability and sharing of information on key health indicators
to enable monitoring to achieve the Abuja Call.
4. Methodology
Data collection tools
Technique
Mixed: Quanti Qualitative
Tools
Questionnaire for country indicators
Guide for group discussion with partners
Qualitative
Guide for discussion with representatives of
countries invited to the meeting to exchange
with the AUC or by telephone interview,
Skype etc ...
4. Methodology
Data analysis
Data analysis will be done at three levels.
• The first level will be to analyze the relevance of policy
documents from an approach based on the qualitative
analysis of the situational analysis of health in Africa and the
framework of these documents.
• Regarding effectiveness in the implementation of the policy
documents, the analysis will be based on the measurement of
the level reached by the different Member States for the main
indicators used in their monitoring and evaluation plan.
• In a third step, an contained analysis will be made on
qualitative information gathered from key stakeholders
(partners and representatives of the countries)
