Terms of Reference:  Review of Programme Evaluation Tools and Methods for
Sexual Violence Projects and Services

Background
Sexual violence has long been neglected both as a public health problem
and a violation of human rights.  As a result, basic surveillance, risk
factor data and programme evaluations are lacking in many parts of the
world. There is a need to review and assess sexual violence projects and
services globally, to see what has been useful and what can be
strengthened.  Quality evaluations are instrumental in helping us to do
this, and in ensuring policy makers see them as important policy options. 
The purpose of this project is to facilitate evaluations of sexual
violence projects and programmes by providing service providers, project
managers, researchers, policy makers, activists, donors and others with a
review of current tools and methods, their strengths and limitations and
to make them accessible through the SVRI website.

Project Goal
The purpose of this project therefore is twofold:  to undertake a review
of programme evaluation tools and methods for sexual violence projects,
and to develop a web page on key sexual violence programme evaluation
methodologies and tools.

Scope of Work
This project should include the following:
•	Identification and analysis of sexual violence project / service
evaluations undertaken globally;
•	300 word case studies of these sexual violence projects/services
including their goals, settings, target groups, how the evaluation was
done and what it found
•	Account of each tool and method used in these evaluations
•	Overview of currently available evaluation tools/methods, which includes
concrete recommendations for future evaluations based on a synthesis of
experiences from sexual violence projects/services evaluations identified
through this project;
•	Work with SVRI secretariat to develop a web-page for programme
evaluation tools for sexual violence projects and services

Expected Project Deliverables
•	A description of each evaluation including their goals, settings, target
groups, how the evaluation was done, tools and methods used and what it
found.
•	A comprehensive collection and summary of evaluation tools/methods that
have been used for sexual violence project/services currently available
internationally, with links to sites where tools can be downloaded and/or
in electronic format (*.pdf files)
•	Synthesis of currently available tools/methods, with concrete
recommendations for future evaluations based on a synthesis of experiences
from sexual violence project/services evaluations
•	SVRI web page on evaluation tools / methods for sexual violence projects
and services

Period of Contract and Project Funding
The period of the contract is four months from 1 July 2006 to 31 October
2006.  A total amount of $US15,000 is available for this work.

detailed budget to the SVRI secretariat by Friday 2nd June to
