This lecture marks the launch of the LSHTM Centre for Evaluation event series entitled: Future directions in global health evaluation: towards a decolonial and equitable framework for practice. This series will bring together an exciting international group of authors, academics, and scholars involved in a growing movement to transform evaluation theory, methods and practice through the application of approaches that are decolonial and equitable.

In this first lecture in the series, we welcome Professor Bagele Chilisa to discuss methodological colonialism in global health evaluation, and introduce postcolonial and indigenous paradigms and approaches to evaluation, including the Made in Africa Evaluation framework. This event will be of interest to students, practitioners and researchers seeking to advance decoloniality and best practices in global health evaluation.​​  

More information on the event series can be found on the LSHTM Centre for Evaluation website
