Background • Increase in funding for malaria control programs in sub-Sahara African in the last decade • Creating need for better M&E support to generate high-quality data, analyze and use them, better inform program planning • However, most NMCP remain understaffed with people with appropriate M&E skills • Malaria M&E courses are being promoted to fill the gap

  17. 17. Post-Workshop Follow-up How workshop has helped in work or research “…immediately after the workshop I was part of a team that was assigned to review our project M&E plan … and most of my contributions to the process were based on what I learnt from the workshop. To be specific, when it came to developing an indicator reference sheet/matrix, we actually used the template developed by my workshop group members as an example.”
  18. 18. Post-Workshop Follow-up, cont. How workshop has helped in work or research “I participated the workshop with newly recruited staff and I was able to handover most of my routine M&E work to him. Now I have more time to work with assisting implementing partners and critically review their PMPs. Recently I was called for taking lead in impact evaluation of the project and hoping to use some of the learning from the workshop.” “Currently, all M&E plans for the implementing partners I work with have been approved. The elements learned during the M&E training helped me guide the partners in the development of good M&E plans.”

  20. 20. Challenges • Course relatively expensive for participants • Sustainability of training program – Supported by partner support – Limited government involvement • Difficulty in assessing the effect of the training on improvement of information system for malaria • Training not demand driven
  21. 21. Way Forward • Assess the impact of the training on malaria M&E • Perform a comprehensive M&E capacity need assessment • Institutionalized such a course in West Africa • Organize in country training on demand • Create a discussion forum for continuous M&E training
  22. 22. Way Forward, Cont. • To offer MPH degree in M&E in a near future – Currently negotiations are underway with the University of Ouagadougou – Curricula development covering interesting domains (Malaria programs, HIV/AIDS, Nutrition, Reproductive Health health interventions…) • Need a strong commitment from all actors involved
