Mali

In Mali, MEASURE Evaluation provides support to the country’s National Malaria Control Program, with additional technical assistance to USAID’s non-malaria monitoring and evaluation (M&E) activities.

A democratically elected president took office in Mali in 2013, following a coup that disrupted society and development assistance. Since then, Mali has had a decentralized system of government and so success in development activities depends upon cooperation among many stakeholders, including civil society, the private sector, and government authorities at multiple levels.

While Mali has seen some health improvements, especially in infant and maternal mortality,[1] the country was affected by the recent West African Ebola outbreak, and continues to be challenged by a high malaria disease burden [2] and low use of modern contraceptives. While working to strengthen the country’s overall health information system (HIS), these health areas are a focus of work for MEASURE Evaluation.

MEASURE Evaluation has provided assistance for the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of health programs in Mali since 2010. MEASURE Evaluation’s support has been primarily focused on expanding the malaria routine information system and malaria epidemic surveillance system; strengthening the health management information system (HMIS); piloting the DHIS 2 software platform for HIS; and addressing other M&E needs requested by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission in Bamako.

MEASURE Evaluation continues to support activities aimed at strengthening the malaria routine information system and malaria epidemic surveillance system, and strengthening and expanding the health management information system (HMIS) by integrating these systems with DHIS 2 at the national and regional levels.

MEASURE Evaluation continues to build upon the foundations laid by the project as described and to expand its portfolio in new areas requested by the USAID Mission. Our activity portfolio includes:

  • Strengthening malaria M&E
  • Strengthening the Mali national HMIS
  • Assessments of the 2016 and 2017 National Campaign for the Promotion of Family Planning in Mali
  • Supporting USAID/Mali's Health Development Objective (DO) M&E Plan, and addressing specific information needs related to preventing child and maternal deaths
  • Developing and deploying an Ebola surveillance system and improving indicators, data collection tools, and data quality of the Ebola surveillance system
