DFID has funded 9 health research programme Consortia (RPCs) since 2011. Each RPC receives approximately £6m over a 6 year period. The Department for International Development (DFID) commissioned Mott MacDonald to conduct a mid-term evaluation of these RPCs individually and to provide an overall synthesis. This synthesis brings together the findings from the individual RPC evaluations and annual reports and draws out broader issues, lessons learned and recommendations about the RPC funding modality and how it might be improved.
DFID’s Management Response and Recommendations Action Plan for the evaluation has been published.
