Start date
End date

The 2gether 4 SRHR is a regional joint United Nations programme that combines the strengths and contributions of four United Nations agencies, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and World Health Organization (WHO) to support countries in the ESA region to scale up the provision of quality integrated SRHR/HIV and SGBV services. The programme has an original activity period from 1 October 2017 to 31 December 2021. It is funded under the strategy for sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) in Sub-Saharan Africa.The programme is regional in scope with applied learning in ten countries. Originally, five of these countries were focus countries: Lesotho, Malawi, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe, with direct funding through the four participating agencies. The rest were transitional countries: Botswana, Eswatini, Kenya, Namibia and South Africa. The programme aims to improve the sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) of all people in East and Southern Africa (ESA) through supporting the efforts of regional economic communities (RECs), governments, and working in partnership with civil society organizations (CSOs), networks of people living with HIV (PLHIV), adolescents and young people, men who have sex with men (MSM) and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex persons (LGBTQI) and people who transact in sex.

The purpose or intended use of the evaluation is to help Sida and its partners to assess progress of the programme, which will provide input to upcoming discussions concerning the potential preparation of a new phase. It will also document lessons learnt and inform how implementation may be adjusted or improved in a potential new phase of the programme. The conclusions and learnings from the evaluation will furthermore be of use for other organisations working towards an integrated, regional approach to SRHR.

In addition to assessing the extent to which the originally intended results have been achieved, the evaluation will also assess how the programme design and focus have evolved over time and how these changes have affected programme results. This includes changes in governance structure, focus countries, the introduction of the COVID-19 component and engagement with the RECs and the AU.

The primary intended users of the evaluation is the regional SRHR team at the Swedish Embassy in Zambia. The objective of this evaluation is to evaluate the coherence, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability of th 2gether 4 SRHR programme to assess the progress of the programme, which will inform will inform decisions on how the implementation may be adjusted or improved, possible in a new phase of the programme.
