Centre for Evaluation

Improving Global Health Practice Through Evaluation

Welcome to the Centre for Evaluation

The Centre for Evaluation aims to improve the design and conduct of evaluations of complex public health interventions through the development, application and dissemination of rigorous methods, and facilitate the use of robust evidence to inform policy and practice decisions.

Methods development is core to what the Centre does, with themes on quantifying impact, process evaluation and synthesis of evaluation studies led by globally recognised leaders in their fields.

The Centre undertakes a variety of activities, including workshops, seminars, networking events and teaching that support and harness the evaluation expertise of researchers at LSHTM and elsewhere, maximising their contributions to and collaborations on the development of evaluation methods and conduct of evaluation studies.
