Project Description

A Peace Corps Response Volunteer is needed to serve as a Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist for the Malawi Network of AIDS Service Organizations (MANASO).

MANASO is currently implementing a project titled “Coordination of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) for the 90-90-90 Targets” that is aimed at improving the coordination of community-based service providers in order to ably contribute to the achievement of the globally recognized 90-90-90 targets for HIV epidemic control. It is also recognized that advocacy by civil society is key to strengthening accountability by partners for the implementation and the monitoring of progress, as well as providing a sense of mutual goals and objectives. Therefore, it is critical that MANASO increases and improves documentation and reporting of its own as well as members’ program performance, achievements, and case studies.

The goal of the assignment is to set up a solid M&E; system for MANASO.
