This project involved the evaluability assessment and the midterm review (MTR) of the UK Government's two Frameworks For Results for Malaria and for Reproductive, Maternal and Newborn Health in the developing world. The Frameworks for Results (FfRs) set out how DFID will deliver on its commitments to help to halve deaths from malaria in at least ten high burden countries by 2015 and to save the lives of at least 50,000 women during pregnancy and childbirth and 250,000 newborn babies by 2015, taking place over four years. Led by OPM, the other consortium members for this evaluation were ITAD, Ecorys and the Institute of Development Studies (IDS). In addition to that a large number of senior academics from several Universities joined this multidisciplinary and high-profile evaluation team. The evaluation covered all 27 countries where the UK Government has these programme. Three countries were selected for case studies during the MTR: Ethiopia, Nigeria and India.
