This end evaluation covers the period from the start of the project (in April 2019) until the end in March 2022, which marked the end of three years of project implementation. It focuses on the effects of the project for primary stakeholders (ZAGO, implementing parties) and secondary stakeholders (the actors ZAGO aimed to influence). The effects of the project on tertiary stakeholders are qualitatively assessed in those communities targeted by ZAGO. The project has been too short, though, to be able to measure community impact, in the sense of the number of women accessing safe abortion services, the number of lives saved, and so on.
