ACT for Performance was solicited by UNICEF DRC to evaluate the MDG 4 and 5 Acceleration Framework of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Faced with security and humanitarian crises for several decades, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) faces major challenges that seriously hamper efforts to reduce child mortality and improve maternal health (MDGs 4 and 5), despite the existence of the Health Development Plans (2011-2015, and 2016-2020) that have set themselves the objective of accelerating the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

This mandate followed the CAO 4&5 evaluability study that ACT undertook in mid-2017 and that showed the relevance and feasibility of the evaluation.
