LSE Measuring Impact and Efficiency of Knowledge Brokering Platforms

UK

The Project

The London School of Economics (LSE) is working with partners including WHO AFRO to develop an African Observatory on Health Systems and Policies (AO-HSP), funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The AO-HSP is based on the European Observatory on Health model also developed by LSE. It aims to build national and regional capacity in Africa to use global knowledge and evidence in improving health system design and performance, with a particular focus on primary health care. The use of effective, evidence-based health policies will ultimately reduce the high burden of avoidable morbidity and mortality across sub-Saharan Africa.

During the inception phase for AO-HSP, LSE was looking to develop its monitoring and evaluation framework to a include a greater focus on measuring efficiency and impact. LAMP carried out a literature review to explore the measurement and evaluation of efficiency and impact in knowledge brokering platforms. LAMP then held a workshop with the core LSE team to guide the development of their M&E framework.

Highlights

  • Conducted a literature review of best practice in measuring impact and efficiency in knowledge brokering platforms
  • Engaged with implementing partners to understand existing systems, capacity and processes to inform recommendations

Client Testimonial

The framework was very well received by the team. The engagement was carried out in a planned, consultative and thorough manner. Communication style, interaction with partners, response timeliness are all excellent.
