Health Partnerships Perspectives Webinar Series

Evaluating Institutional Health Partnerships

Streamed on Friday 30 April 

Institutional Health Partnerships are important, and the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted their importance even more. At the same time it is important that these partnerships are truly equal, allowing for mutual learning. It is therefore important not only to evaluate the implementation of a specific project, but the quality of the partnership itself.  In this we webinar we invited our speakers to discuss the following:  

  • Why should we evaluate Institutional partnerships? 
  • How can we make the most of the results of such an evaluation? 
  • Lessons learnt from the partnerhips’ evaluation processes. 


  • Vicky Doyle, Director, Capacity Development International
  • Ahmed Razavi, Consultant in global public health and the Africa portfolio lead for the IHR Strengthening Project at Public Health England. 
  • David Weakliam, Global Health Programme Director in the Health Service Executive in Ireland. ESTHER Ireland

Improving Health Service Quality through Health Partnerships

The institutional health partnership (IHP) approach has emerged as a successful means of global collaboration between health institutions in developing and developed countries. The power of partnerships working together has had a positive impact on health care services. Besides supporting essential services, delivering quality health care is essential to achieve universal health coverage (UHC), and it is crucial to build trust in health services among populations.
