Keystone Title: An evaluation framework to assess the effectiveness of a health-related capacity building in Mongu, Zambia
Abstract: Cam synthesizes two evaluative frameworks designed to assess capacity building projects, and tailored it to the ongoing efforts of the Okanagan zambia Health Initiative (OkaZHI), an inter-professional arrangement between Canadians and Zambians with the goal of improving healthcare for Zambians through education and capacity enhancement. Based on extended field work in Zambia with OkaZHI in 2009, including a surgical training conference, skill workshops, and interviews with doctors, students, and medical staffs, his analysis includes philosophical, anthropological, scientific and environmental principles as well as quantitative reasoning to assess impact.
