Measurement, learning and evaluation work in global health is entirely dependent on partnerships at many different levels. Within IDEAS we have developed, and depended on, a series of partnerships with groups based in Ethiopia, Nigeria and India as well as with groups in the UK and the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation in Seattle. We are acutely aware that without our partners, none of our work would be possible and we are deeply committed to embedding mutual capacity development in our work. With renewed energy and focus given by the movement to ‘decolonise’ global health, we have made particular efforts to work towards our partnerships being as equitable as possible. As LSHTM works to come to terms with our own colonial past, we know there is more to do in this area.

In Ethiopia, we would particularly like to acknowledge and thank the Ethiopia Public Health Institute and the Ministry of Health; the School of Public Health, Addis Ababa University; the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, Addis Ababa; and JaRco Consulting.

In Nigeria, we thank the Society for Family Health; Pact; Data Research and Mapping Consult Limited, Abuja; the Office of the Executive Secretary, Gombe State Primary Health Care Development Agency; ChildCare Wellness Clinics; the Health Strategy and Delivery Foundation; and University of Lagos College of Medicine.

We also want to thank Tattva Foundation, Lucknow, India.

In the UK, we thank the Institute for Global Health, University College London.
