Commissioning Party: Cooper / Smith
Period: Oct 2020 – July 2023
The Ministry of Health in collaboration with the National Aids Commission (NAC) has, with funding from Bill and Melinda Gates through George Town University as principal investigator, initiated the Blantyre HIV Prevention Project, a 5-year project that will (1) catalyse locally led development of an optimized system for rapid and sustained uptake of HIV prevention intervention and products; and (2) ensure sustained prevention performance and implementation by embedding key functions within district-level systems, leveraging multisectoral capabilities, and establishing a framework for adaptive learning.
A critical component of this project will involve building a data pipeline that will bring together relevant aggregate data from different sources for analytics and use. Compelling Works is one of the key organizations contributing to the implementation of this component of the project.
Key research activities supported under the BPS project:
- Service Delivery Mapping: Mapping of health facilities in Blantyre to understand who is doing what, when and where in the context of HIV prevention. Designed study, drafted protocol, conducted study and consolidated data for analytics.
- CBO Network Mapping: Designed study protocol for mapping CBOs delivering HIV prevention services in Blantyre.
- Data user study: Assessing the capacity of key data users under the BPS project. Designed study protocol, submitted for approval, and now providing technical assistance in data collection and consolidation.
