Mid-Term Evaluation of Momentum Integrated Health Resilience (MIHR) project. 


GDS conducted the mid-term evaluation of USAID’s $300 million global Momentum Integrated Health Resilience (MIHR) project that is awarded to a consortium, led by Corus International.


The project has been working to improve access to and availability of high-quality MNCH/FP/RH services in fragile and conflict-affected settings, achieve resilience of the services, and then scale them up and increase the capacity of partner country institutions. MIHR is unique in its focus on populations facing shocks, crises, and fragility, and health systems affected by social and ethnic conflicts, civil wars, and natural calamities on top of poor economic conditions. This project is implemented in ten countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

The purpose of the Midterm evaluation was to document key MIHR achievements, outline the strengths and opportunities, document lessons-learned and best practices and propose actionable recommendations to meet programmatic objectives with a clear timeline and specification of responsibility.

The evaluation employed a mixed methods approach to obtain and triangulate evidence from multiple sources. These methods included examination of over 120 documents, interviewing over 70 key informants, conducting twelve focus-group discussions (FGDs), and an online survey of 24 stakeholders that included USAID, host country governments, and NGO officials. Key informants (KII) included USAID officials in Washington and in four selected countries, senior MIHR HQs. staff and in-country teams. The twelve focus groups included subject matter experts and Monitoring, Evaluation, Research, and Learning (MERL) experts from project HQs. and the four selected countries of South Sudan, Sudan, Mali, and Burkina Faso.
