The Global Health Evaluation and Learning Support Activity (GH EvaLS) provides evaluation, assessment, and learning support for health-related projects and activities at USAID/Washington and USAID Missions. Projects within the USAID Bureau for Global Health’s portfolio support the U.S. Government’s goals to improve global health through preventing child and maternal deaths; controlling the HIV/AIDS epidemic; and combating infectious diseases, such as COVID-19.

These include the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria (GFATM); and GH cooperating agency implementing partners, such as U.S. and international nongovernmental organizations and private corporations and foundations.
