UNFPA provided US$3.6 million over 1996 to 1999 to help Myanmar expand its birth spacing (BS) services, not oniy in terms of additional sites (from 20 townships in 1995 to 72 in 1996), but also in terms of additional types of contraceptives (pills, injectables, IUDs and condoms). An external Evaluation Team was asked to assess progress to date in strengthening local capacity to do this. The team examined the five major targets of this capacity-building strategy: 1) training; 2) information, education and communication (IEC); 3) service delivery; 4) management information; and 5) project management. The evaluation was conducted between mid-September and mid-October 1999.
