Surveillance Data Review Meetings in Malaria-Endemic Counties in Kenya Abstract:

MEASURE Evaluation PIMA, funded by the United States Agency for International Development and the U.S. President's Malaria Initiative, supported the rollout of training to the malaria high-burden, high-priority counties of Kisumu, Siaya, Migori, Homa Bay, Kakamega, Busia, Vihiga, and Bungoma. To date, a total of 4,669 health workers have been trained on malaria surveillance nationally. In the malaria lake endemic region of west Kenya, a total of 1,152 health workers were trained. To ensure that the skills and competencies gained by the health workers during the training are used, MEASURE Evaluation PIMA conducted a number of post-training activities in the targeted counties. The aim of these activities was to instill high demand for data and good data use practices among health workers, thereby developing a culture of data use for decision making. These post-training activities included stakeholder mapping, data/performance review, malaria technical working groups, mentorship visits, continuing medical education, and data quality audits. This report provides a summary of the data/performance review meetings that took place within the PIMA-targeted counties.
