Project Description

A Peace Corps Response Volunteer (PCRV) with intermediate French proficiency and experience in data analysis and monitoring and evaluation is needed to assist the staff of District Sanitaire De Amou, a Ministry of Health (MOH) hospital in the Plateaux Region, to improve their monitoring and evaluation (M&E) capabilities through capacity-building and development of M&E mechanisms. As Togo’s health system is developing to prevent maternal and newborn mortality and diseases that affect a wider population, this MOH hospital is a district medical center in charge of coordinating and facilitating all health services for the 24 governmental village clinics (dispensaries), and has taken a hands-on approach to improving the health, equality and opportunities of people across communities in Togo.

The PCRV will work with leadership at District Sanitaire De Amou to empower and build the capacity of district nurses to be able to use monitoring and evaluation instruments for the purpose of generating quality health information and data that support evidence-based decisions in health interventions. The Volunteer will establish/develop health information monitoring and evaluation instruments and best practices in collecting, analyzing, interpreting, and generating reports and presentations that would be made at regional and national levels. Other duties will include training and coaching district health staff on the utilization of monitoring and evaluation instruments.

Please note that departure dates and other details of this project could change because of the uncertainties as Peace Corps and local partners resume volunteer operations. Candidates selected for this position will be arriving in Togo together as a group, so while the departure dates for the whole group could change, dates cannot be changed for individual candidates.
