Malawi - National Evaluation Platform in Malawi

The National Evaluation Platform (NEP) is a rigorous new approach to compiling and analysing health and nutrition data from diverse sources so that national policymakers in LMICs can evaluate the effectiveness and impact of maternal, newborn, child health, and nutrition (MNCH&N) programs and policies. The Government of Canada funded the Institute for International Programs at Johns Hopkins University (IIP-JHU) to develop NEP pilots in four sub-Saharan African countries (Mali, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania) between 2013-2017. Country-led and country-owned, the NEP offers a core set of evaluation methods and tools to build sustainable national capacity to develop evidence-based answers to pressing program and policy questions and track progress towards national and global scale-up targets. The NEP is driven by evaluation needs of government stakeholders in each participating country. IIP-JHU develops custom trainings and provides mentorship based on countries’ unique evaluation questions and existing evaluation capacity. 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.
