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.

The Ministry of Health with funding from Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation have embarked on a digital project to improve on the turnaround time for viral load results return to patients.

This project running over two years is being implemented by Cooper/Smith in collaboration with Compelling Works as implementing partner on the ground. It will greatly contribute to reduced turnaround time in viral load results return to clients and also provide a platform for information, education, and communication.

Future perspective include extending it´s features to support other areas including Early Infant Diagnosis (EID) as well as other health sector programs.

Key research activities under VLRR project

Designed research protocol to gain insights into user expectations of a digital solution for return viral load results to client in a timely manner. After protocol approval, Compelling Works will carry out the research.

Compelling Works (formerly SionaPros) continues to develop the AlSuite platform for integrated project management, a platform creatively linking accounts, M&E, and operations to strengthen management of and transparency in development projects. This platform has now been adopted by several other organizations including FOWODE in Uganda, Chilungamo, and HISP West Africa in Togo.

Alongside a complete double accounting suite, the M&E component of this platform links outcomes, outputs, milestones, and key indicators; and it permits the tracking of risks and requests for management interventions.

In collaboration with management4health GmbH – www.m4health.pro, we set out to make the management of expert CVs simpler and even enjoyable. Built on the AlSuite platform, the Experts CV management database enables consultants to create a master CV from which they are then able to instantly export to different formats (currently EU, World Bank, GIZ, and KfW). Furthermore, the expert can share his CV with organizations to which he is subscribed.

This database has been developed in a clouds platform for use by multiple organizations. It will soon be released to the benefit of subscribing organizations.

The EU Justice Project in Malawi (Chilungamo) commissioned Compelling Works to configure AlSuite for the management of the organization´s accounts and M&E. The AlSuite platform was customized to fulfil these requirements. The result was a functional system capable of handling key accounting features in a double-posting setup and generating all key financial reports, and most importantly in EU format. AlSuite is now the de facto accounting system used by the Project Implementation Unit (PIU) team of the Chilungamo project.

Compelling Works team continues to offer invaluable support to the Chilungamo team, including the addition of new features based on positive feedback and suggestions for improvement by the Chilungamo team.

Compelling Works configured DHIS2 for MIFUMI, a human rights organization in Uganda that protects women and children from violence in Uganda to support with this effort. We designed the necessary forms for capturing survivor information, purchased an online Linux-based server, configured DHIS2 (including Tracker) to support the organization, and configured pivot tables, visualizers, and standard reports for analytics. We then trained staff, commissioned the system to use, transferred ownership and provided continuous support and improvement of the platform.
