Work Package 11
ResultsinHealth (RiH) is a public health advisory agency that was founded in the mid-1990s. RiH's work is guided by three principles of action: evidence-based, innovative and practice-oriented. RiH strives to generate evidence on effective public health interventions, translate this evidence into innovative approaches, and apply these approaches to new strategies for practical solutions. Combining this practical and cost-effective approach with in-depth technical know-how, RiH represents a new way of addressing international health that is characterised by high-quality standards, specialized expertise, transparency and flexibility.
RiH is known for its expert services in monitoring and evaluation (M&E) that employ quantitative and qualitative techniques, including the use of mixed methods. RiH has highly developed expertise in applying participatory qualitative evaluation methods such as the 'Most Significant Change' (MSC) methodology, Outcome Harvesting (OH), Positive Deviance (PD) and participatory visual methods (e.g. Participatory Video and Photo Voice). RiH conducts exploratory research, formative research, and operational/applied research. Trainings in diverse evaluation techniques have been organised at the global level and with in-house courses in (international) organisations. Given its broad focus, RiH has also been involved in the evaluation of non-health programmes, such as climate change prevention, poverty reduction and coastal livelihood restoration.
