TEAM LEADER, PRESIDENT’S MALARIA INITIATIVE (PMI) ASSESSMENT, LIBERIA
Social Impact (SI) is a global development management consulting firm. We provide monitoring, evaluation, strategic planning, and capacity building services to advance development effectiveness. We work across all development sectors including democracy and governance, health and education, the environment, and economic growth. Since 1997 we have worked in over 100 countries for clients such as US government agencies, bilateral donors, multilateral development banks, foundations, and nonprofits.
In Liberia, SI supports IBI to implement the USAID-funded Liberia Data, Evaluation, Learning and Technical Assistance (DELTA) with the goal to provide an innovative degree of analytical and advisory services to USAID/Liberia’s Office of Program and Project Development (PPD) and Development Objective (DO) teams in support of the Mission’s project design, performance monitoring and evaluation, and operational learning and adapting.
USAID/Liberia has engaged DELTA to document and assess what has been achieved since the scale up of PMI interventions three years ago, taking into consideration the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, which posed challenges to maintaining delivery of malaria services. PMI is the largest bilateral funder of malaria prevention and control interventions supporting 27 countries (24 in the sub-Saharan Africa and 3 in Southeast Asia) to control and eliminate malaria. Liberia became a PMI focus country in FY 2008 with PMI supporting the core interventions of malaria case management, ITNs, MIP, and IRS and the cross-cutting interventions like HMIS and SBC.
This assessment will synthesize evidence that highlights the scope of PMI’s investment in Liberia since 2008, demonstrate the progress that Liberia has made with malaria prevention and control since 2008, gauge efficacy of key scale-up activities since 2017, and underscore the significance of PMI’s funding to the gains Liberia has made in malaria prevention and control.
The assessment will document progress and changes, strengths and weaknesses, intended and unintended results and inform USAID/Liberia’s future planning in the following areas:
USAID/Liberia and PMI constitute the primary audience of the assessment. USAID/Liberia intends to share the assessment findings with the Government of Liberia and the broader public, which will require an infographic brief to be developed by the DELTA in closed coordination with the Mission. The assessment finding will support future USAID’s programming related to malaria in Liberia and help in advocating for continued funding of malaria control interventions in the country.
SociaI Impact is seeking a Team Leader (TL) to conduct this assessment. This is a consulting position with an estimated start date of October 1, 2022. The estimated level of effort (LOE) for the TL will be 60 days, with 35 days in Liberia (both in and outside of Monrovia).
