WHO Evaluation Policy 2018.pdf (240 KB / English)


The purpose of this policy is to define the overall framework for evaluation at WHO, to foster the culture and use of evaluation across the Organization, and to facilitate conformity of evaluation at WHO with best practices and with the norms and standards for evaluation of the United Nations Evaluation Group.

The accountability framework of WHO includes several types of assessments. WHO considers that all are crucial to programme development and institutional learning. This policy addresses only the assessments qualifying as “Evaluation” and excludes other forms of assessments conducted in WHO, such as monitoring, performance assessment, surveys, and audit.
