Project Last Mile’s partnership with the Yale Global Health Leadership Initiative (GHLI) commenced at the start of the Project Last Mile partnership. GHLI has been able to gather valuable insights about the Project Last Mile and process lessons learnt, as well as outcomes and the impact of the partnership. This long-term approach means that GHLI will track these findings for years to come.
GHLI constantly shares the results of its findings with the partnership to assist Project Last Mile with replicating work more effectively across additional countries and contexts.
Besides providing regular monitoring and evaluation support, Yale GHLI also researches, presents and publishes abstracts and manuscripts related to Project Last Mile.
