Date(s)
Oct 12-13, 2023

The Africa Higher Education Health Collaborative Monitoring, Evaluation, Learning, & Adaptation (MELA) Co-creation Workshop was held on October 12 & 13  in Cape Town, South Africa.

The MELA workstream engages all ten members of the Health Collaborative including the Mastercard Foundation to ensure alignment with the Foundation’s Impact Strategy. As such, the workshop included representation selected from across all members of the Health Collaborative and across the three pillars (HENT, HEMP, HECO).

The overall objective was to create a Theory of Change (ToC) and learning framework for the Africa Higher Education Health Collaborative (HC) which was co-created with the ten Health Collaborative partners during the two-day, in-person workshop. The outcome of the workshop presented a pathway of change or results logic for each pillar, which moves from intervention to immediate outcomes, to intermediate outcomes, and eventually long-term level outcomes which are about strengthened primary health care workforce, innovations, and systems.
