Impact Framework

Monitoring Impact

At reach52, we continuously monitor and optimise the impact of everything we do. It’s essential for ensuring our services are delivering value for our communities and all partners in the health system. It’s vital for fast learning, so we can amplify what’s working and make improvements where needed.

Our Impact Framework is how we approach this, setting and measuring the outputs, primary outcomes and secondary outcomes for every service we implement – whether in non-communicable diseases, infectious diseases, maternal and child health, or financial protection. We focus on four key areas in evaluating and monitoring impact – Promoting Health Awareness, Strengthening Health Systems, Offering Access to Affordable Healthcare, and Building a Sustainable Health Ecosystem.

The primary outcomes are the direct measurable results of the services we deliver, whereas secondary outcomes are the longer-term impact we’re helping to achieve alongside other system actors. Ultimately this impact links to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals – SDG3 ‘Good Health and Wellbeing’, but also SDG1 ‘No Poverty’, SDG5 ‘Gender Equality’, and SDG8 ‘Decent Work and Economic Growth’.

 

Every service varies, but you can click through to see the typical measures we set below, and check out our impact case studies here.
