Capacity of Sierra Leone’s National Malaria Control Programme for Monitoring and Evaluation: Baseline Assessment Abstract:

MEASURE Evaluation, which is funded by the United States Agency for International Development and the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative, assessed the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) capacity of Sierra Leone's National Malaria Control Program (NMCP). This assessment had the following specific objectives:

  • To understand the current capacity of the malaria program to conduct M&E activities
  • To assess the capabilities of individual staff members to carry out M&E functions
  • To determine gaps in malaria M&E capacity
  • To identify and prioritize interventions to strengthen M&E
  • To develop a capacity-building plan

The assessment consisted of a desk review of existing documentation and primary data collection through group assessment and individual assessment tools described in the Monitoring and Evaluation Capacity Assessment Toolkit.
