Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist

Project Description

The District Sanitaire De Amou (DPS-Amou) in Togo has requested the support of a Peace Corps Response Volunteer (PCRV) to serve as a Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist. The District Health Hospital of Amou provides healthcare service delivery to an estimated population of 78,000 inhabitants. Despite its strategic importance, the District Health Hospital faces many challenges and the leadership at the District Health Hospital would like to strengthen the capacity of district nurses and focal point of contacts to be able to develop monitoring and evaluation instruments for the purpose of generating quality health information data that support evidence-based decisions.

The PCRV will work closely with the Medical Assistant/ Administrative Officer to assist in building the capacity of district nurses and focal points responsible for the collection of health information data in the 24 village clinics in Amou. The PCRV will co-facilitate the development of monitoring and evaluation instruments to aid the collection of health information data and co-train/coach district nurses and focal points on the utilization of those monitoring and evaluation instruments.

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.
