EQUI® IN ACTION

Since 2012 – SI has used the EQUI system to guide more than 100 performance evaluations in all sectors and is actively tracking the utilization of the evaluation findings to better understand the outcome of evaluations.  We have shared this system with donors to help them to improve the quality of their evaluations.

I had the opportunity to be trained in the EQUI approach prior to initiating the final evaluation of a multi-state urban health program in India. Despite my 15 odd years of experience in evaluating programs, I found myself learning the finer nuances of the quality in evaluation. The EQUI checklists helped my team to ensure a quality report, making the entire process very productive. … I am grateful to SI for investing in my skills by offering this course.
