thesisposted on 2019-02-26, 20:58 authored by DIANA FRANCIS WONG
This thesis presents the development and international validation of a unique, unifying comprehensive framework that structures disaster evaluation typologies along the disaster timeline. This Framework improves the validity of disaster evaluation by clarifying various evaluation typologies and strengthens the evidence-base of health interventions delivered in response to disasters. It provides consistent terminology and standards for evaluation and reporting across the different phases of a disaster. This in turn provides comparability to better understand the process, outcomes, and impacts of the efficacy and efficiency of interventions.
