Mentoring: Partnering in Cote d’Ivoire

by on January 24, 2014

Enabling the public workforce to collect and use data to guide programs and policiesIn Cote d’Ivoire, MEASURE Evaluation partnered with four national training institutions to build and deliver academic courses that train local health officials in monitoring and evaluation and health information; now, each institution is able to provide these courses independently. With assistance from MEASURE Evaluation, the National Training Institute for Health Agents, the National Training Institute for Social Workers, the National Institute of Applied Economics, and the National Institute of Public Health have trained more than 850 key health professionals including nurses, midwives, social workers, data managers, and program officers. And now that each institution can carry out training on its own, more health facility professionals in Cote d’Ivoire are situated to gain a better understanding of data. A stronger grasp of data among health facility staff members (who are often required to collect data, regardless of how well they understand it) can contribute greatly to higher quality and better use of data.
