Evaluation of Finnish health aid to Nicaragua

Finland has supportedthree different programmes in the health sector in Nicaragua. As Finland phases out its final support to the country by the end of this year, these programmes will be evaluated.

The three programmes are: promotion of sexual and reproductive health with emphasis on adolescent and youth; the Joint Fund for Gender Equity and Reproductive Health and Rights; and the Nicaraguan Health Fund. The latter two are funded by a number of donors with Finland as lead. The programmes are to be evaluated during one mission, but three separate reports will be delivered.

The evaluation mission is timed for early 2013. The deadline for submission of tenders is December 18, 2012.
