We can then look back on these results and evaluate within each individual business. That is why we offer a comprehensive product based on a proven model developed by the distinguished Centre for Disease Control (CDC).

Lets implement a Program!

Incredible Implementation

Our program designs use evidence-based practices which make sure they are well-designed and well-conducted.

The needs of the targeted population inform the program through a ‘Participate Approach’, meaning your perceptions and attitudes are taken into account

We conduct planning in a facilitated manner, allowing a multi-sector team plan. This aligns their activities and intents and decisions around a common program.

Clearly defining workstreams, timelines, roles and responsibilities,  identifying and managing risks. We have a national database of staff to support program implementation.

We evaluate the program outcome to ensure it delivers results and has a positive impact

Program Evaluations

At Epicentre we believe in partnerships to help you deliver the result your communities deserve and your funders expect. That’s why we work with you to do a pre-evaluation in partnership, to close gaps before your evaluation.

Lets implement a Program!

Efficient Evaluation

Before we start evaluating a program, we clarify with our client the following questions:

What will be evaluated?

What criteria will be used to judge program performance?

What standards of performance on the criteria must be reached for the program to be considered successful?

What evidence will indicate performance on the criteria relative to the standards?

What conclusions about program performance it justifies, based on the available evidence?

We apply the six-step framework for evaluation:

Engage stakeholders, Describe the program, Focus the evaluation design, Gather credible evidence, Justify conclusions

Ensure use and share lessons learned: We test and share our recommendations, Sharing draft recommendations, Soliciting reactions from multiple stakeholders, Presenting options instead of directive advice
