Independent evaluation


An independent evaluation of SiREN was undertaken by John Scougall Consulting Services in May 2015. The evaluation had two objectives:

  1. To identify the value SiREN adds to the sexual health and blood-borne virus sector in terms of:
    a. Strengthening sector capacity
    b. Building partnerships
    c. Long-term health for consumers
  2. To provide a formative (program development) perspective that identifies options to improve and refine the SiREN model.

In order to answer these objectives a mixed method approach was undertaken, which involved a:

  • desktop document analysis;
  • program description and logic workshop;
  • qualitative interviews;
  • on-line survey; and
  • case studies.

The evaluation was overall very uplifting and included some clear messages about where SiREN needs to focus their future efforts.
