Data for Impact (D4I) is hosting a one-hour webinar on October 17, 2019 at 9 am EDT. Emily Bobrow, PhD, MPH, and Heather Davis, MPH, will lead the webinar and share lessons learned in using process tracing for evaluation in their work with MEASURE Evaluation, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the United States President’s Emergency Fund for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).
Today, evaluations require methods that are flexible; allow for the complexity of current public health programming in low-resource settings; and address field challenges such as strict budget and time constraints, limited baseline data, and lack of access to comparison groups. Under these circumstances, process tracing is a useful tool for evaluators. Process tracing is a qualitative method for assessing causal inference within a single case design but has had limited application in public health. In this webinar, you will learn how this method was adapted for public health evaluations in Uganda and Madagascar, and review lessons learned from its implementation.
