Practice Notes from a Participatory Impact Evaluation of a Leadership Development Program for People Living with HIV
Keywords:program evaluation, evaluation methods, stakeholders, evaluation community
Interest in participatory evaluation and other collaborative inquiry approaches has risen substantially over the past few decades. However, there appears to be a lack of practical information about using and applying participatory evaluation approaches on-the-ground. This Practice Note uses a participatory impact evaluation of a leadership development program for people living with HIV and findings from a meta-evaluation of this work to describe: (i) the participatory evaluation approach adopted; (ii) challenges and lessons learned related to conducting a participatory evaluation; and (iii) some key factors and implications to consider maximizing success of future participatory evaluations.
