This evaluation includes an assessment of the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability of the project. From its start, attention was given to strengthening AOGU with the intention that societies would continue to flourish after the grant ends. Therefore, the evaluation assessed the extent to which the societies were strengthened and the likelihood that this would be sustained. Similarly, when looking at programmatic sustainability, an assessment was formed of the likelihood of societies and networks continuing their work towards improving access to safe abortion. Finally, the scope of this evaluation includes the sustainability of the outcomes.
