Technopolis Group to evaluate the ‘Public Health Initiatives’ programme in Estonia

2nd March 2017

The Technopolis Group Baltic office, in collaboration with the Centre for Applied Social Sciences (CASS) at the University of Tartu, has launched an ex-post evaluation of the ‘Public Health Initiatives’ programme. The programme was funded by the Norwegian Grants 2009-2014, and its priority areas included prevention, detection and treatment of mental health and lifestyle-related disorders – with a primary focus on children.

The evaluation, commissioned by the Estonian Ministry of Social Affairs, seeks to determine whether and how the implemented activities helped to achieve the programme’s objectives and those of the Norwegian Grants. Moreover, the evaluation aims to ascertain whether and how the programme has contributed to the implementation of the ‘Estonian National Health Plan 2009-2020’, and of the ‘Development Plan for Children and Families 2012-2020’.

The evaluation will run until the end of May 2017 and will result in a set of recommendations on how to improve the efficiency and sustainability of programme activities during the next period of the Norwegian Financial Mechanism (2014-2021).
