Impact assessment 2019 methodology

The 2019 impact assessment uses quantitative and qualitative data from three sources: a partner survey, NNHF project portfolio data and project partners’ progress reports.

Partner survey

Conducted in December 2019 and distributed using an online survey development tool¹, this survey collects data on impact creation in our three focus areas: capacity building; diagnosis and registry; education and empowerment.

The survey was sent to partners from 48 NNHF programmes across 38 countries which were running or completed in 2019. Representatives from 39 programmes responded, meaning 81% of NNHF running or completed programmes are represented in the results. Respondents were given the option to provide their name or stay anonymous.

Programme portfolio data

We use programme modules to categorise activities taking place within programmes, which facilitates Better Practice Sharing and tracking of the distribution of funds per category.

Project partners’ progress reports

To monitor their activities and measure impact, our partners complete half-yearly progress reports throughout the duration of their projects. We use these reports to highlight success and areas for Better Practice Sharing, and to identify where we can provide further support. Quantitative data is extracted from these reports to allow for cross-portfolio data analysis.

Unless otherwise stated, the data presented in this impact assessment overview is from the 2019 partner survey.
