M&E of Malaria Programs

This workshop aims to increase regional capacity for M&E of malaria. Workshop participants acquire knowledge of M&E fundamentals as they specifically relate to malaria programs and gain hands-on experience in designing M&E plans. This workshop is targeted at national and sub-national level malaria personnel, especially those responsible for gathering, analyzing, and using program-related data, and NGO and USAID Mission personnel responsible for oversight of malaria programs, especially in the areas of reporting, monitoring and evaluation.

This module contains the course content, handouts and other training materials from a complete training workshop on monitoring and evaluation of malaria programs that was implemented by MEASURE Evaluation and our regional training partners at the University of Ghana School of Public Health in June 2012. This course is offered annually. It is an international course that offers intensive training on fundamental concepts and tools for monitoring and evaluating malaria programs.  If you are interested in attending this workshop, more information is available here.

Throughout the workshop, participants gain hands-on experience in designing M&E plans through course modules, in-class exercises, and working in small groups. Participants also work together to complete a group project throughout the course of the workshop. The participant groups present the results of their projects during the final day of the workshop. The materials provided below include PowerPoint slides with speaker notes; course handouts, case studies, and group activities.

This course was developed in collaboration with faculty from the University of Ghana School of Public Health. These materials were created by MEASURE Evaluation staff. We also would like to thank other contributors for their help and guidance, both within MEASURE Evaluation and outside experts, too numerous to mention here.
