Global objectives

The global objective of this assignment is to contribute to the reinforcement of the health management system by improving accountability for results, through third party verification and monitoring of development strategies. Cooperation with all stakeholders active in the sector (e.g. national and local Lebanese authorities, local academia and research centers, other NGOs and international organizations) will be ensured and strengthened in order to gather reliable, independent data and statistics, which could be used to orientate the needed reforms in the sector.

In particular, this third party monitoring will serve to monitor the performance of the projects (5) funded by the EUTF Action Document ‘Lebanon Health Programme for Syrian refugees and vulnerable Lebanese population’, the first Lebanon-only health Action approved by the Trust Fund Board in December 2016. It will also monitor the other EUTF funded regional projects (3) that include a health component for Lebanon, and the new set of EUTF health funded programmes for Lebanon under preparation (number of projects be determined later).

The results will especially focus on the enabling factors and those hampering a proper delivery of results in order to adjust its design or current implementing modalities. They will provide useful information and data to be used by MoPH in order to progress towards the Universal Health Care coverage (UHC). At the same time, results could be also used to understand the performance of the Action with the aim to better orientate the possible future donors’ interventions by gathering evidence, improving disaggregated data collection, analysis and management linking up with existing platforms or networks.

The key stakeholders of the third party monitoring will be the Lebanese Ministry of Public Health (MoPH), the Ministry of Social Affairs (MoSA), EU services (EUTF Madad, EU Delegation to Lebanon), the implementing partners of EUTF projects, UN agencies, civil society and EU Member States. Some results could be also relevant for other donors active in the health sector in Lebanon for their current/future actions.

Specific objectives

  • The Strengthening and capacity building actions on the MoPH health information system (in synergy with other HSS activities) by providing independent, reliablefigures and statistics. 
  • The overall independent assessment of the current and past performance of the EUTF Action Document ‘Lebanon Health Programme for Syrian refugees and vulnerable Lebanese population’ against the six building blocks of an health system in the context of the Lebanese health system14, as well as other EUTF health related programmes, past and future, in Lebanon, as described above
  • The overall independent assessment of the current and past performance of the regional projects having a health components implemented in Lebanon, paying particular attention to their complementarity with the projects contracted from the EUTF Action Document ‘Lebanon Health Programme for Syrian refugees and vulnerable Lebanese population’. Particular focus has to be made on the added value/impact of the regional dimension in the Lebanese health sector.
