National Evaluation Platform in Malawi
The Institute for International Programs at the Johns Hopkins University (IIP-JHU) has been funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada (DFATD) to implement a project aimed at improving accountability for women's and children's health and nutrition. This project, called the National Evaluation Platform Approach (NEP), is supporting the development and implementation of new approaches to identify, compile, and rigorously analyze high-quality data from diverse multi-sectorial sources, in order to evaluate the effectiveness and impact of health and nutrition programs. The NEP approach offers a core set of evaluation methods and builds national capacity to develop evidence-based answers to pressing program and policy questions and track progress towards national and global scale-up targets. Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, and Tanzania are currently building their own NEPs for maternal, newborn and child health and nutrition (MNCH&N), with technical support from IIP. Public sector institutions including ministries, statistics offices and research institutes are leading partners in every aspect of NEP's development and use. This position is for the NEP in Malawi.
