Turning a right into practice: Impact evaluation of the Ixchen Centre for Women cervical cancer programme in Nicaragua (2005-2009)

Datum van publicatie: 

This impact study is part of a policy review of
Dutch involvement in sexual and reproductive
health and rights (SRHR), roughly during the
period 2007-2011, emphasizing the results that
have been obtained. The Policy and Operations
Evaluation Department (IOB) of the Dutch Ministry
of Foreign Affairs is responsible for this work.

The present evaluation is part of the assessment
of bilateral cooperation programs. The study
addresses the prevention and treatment of
cervical cancer, a major reproductive health
problem in Nicaragua. It focuses on remote rural
areas where the local NGO ‘Ixchen’ - in collaboration
with the Ministry of Health - has introduced
a new approach for translating the right to
reproductive health into practice.

Both quantitative and qualitative research methods have been
applied to identify the impact of this approach.

The results of the study confirm that the
interventions for screening and treating cervical
cancer yield substantial net effects for treated
clients, even while knowledge levels remain low.
