Evaluation of the National Strategy: Comprehensive Approach To Non-Communicable Chronic Diseases and Obesity 2013-2021 in Costa Rica
IDEA has been hired by the Ministry of Planning and Economic Policy (Mideplan) to carry out the evaluation of the “National Strategy: Comprehensive Approach to Chronic Non-Communicable Diseases and Obesity”. The objective is to evaluate the design and processes of the Strategy and its action plan, in order to contribute to the improvement of design, management and evidence-based decision making.
IDEA designed 4 data collection instruments: documentary review, interviews, focus group, and a participatory workshop using the Assessing for Results A4R® process and software. The IDEA evaluation team is currently in Costa Rica carrying out the latest data collection activities according to the A4R® process, which we hope will contribute to strengthening the strategy design process for the next period.
