Session X – Technical Leadership in Monitoring and Evaluation

Session X will focus on advances over the last few years in monitoring and evaluation of programs to prevent, control, and treat malaria and programs to prevent and treat HIV and mitigate its effects

Slides

Overview – Heidi Reynolds

Session X focuses on advances in monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of programs to prevent, control, and treat malaria and programs to prevent and treat HIV and mitigate its effects. In both diseases areas, the emphasis in M&E has shifted from population-based surveillance to identifying smaller geographic areas where transmission is occurring. Programs can then be targeted where the need is greatest. Presenters will highlight developments in M&E that help programs reach the right people with appropriate interventions.

Malaria Monitoring & Evaluation:  Looking for malaria, finding a system – Leopoldo Villegas

M&E systems are designed to improve malaria program performance by tracking progress and measuring achievements. A strong M&E system requires reliable data, human resources, key indicators and tools, and a strategy to measure impact. This presentation covers aspects of MEASURE Evaluation’s work in this important area, including creating synergy, an optimal mix of interventions, and strategic plans to combat malaria.

Advances in Monitoring and Evaluation of Programs for Key Populations – Sharon Weir

We can’t eliminate HIV transmission risk without focusing on the key geographic pockets where HIV transmission is occurring. Local assessments are of increasing value. For example, a PLACE study in Uganda found pockets of high HIV prevalence in a district with the lowest general HIV prevalence. Interventions need to be targeted to those groups and those determinants that increase susceptibility to infection, efficiency of transmission, and duration of infectivity.
