Monitoring, Evaluation, Research and Learning (MERL)
Monitoring, Evaluation, Research and Learning (MERL) for the USAID/South Africa Bilateral Health Office. Through the MERL task order (TO), Panagora is leading a 5-year activity to support USAID/South Africa’s Bilateral Office of Health to maximize results under the Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) health development objective. We will help USAID tackle the high volume of data and transition to a more systematic and intentional CLA approach, advancing USAID more strategically focus resources, improve IP management, and replicate best practices and efficient models. We will supplement USAID capacity for three ongoing tasks: SIMS (site improvement monitoring system) analytics, PEPFAR performance reporting analytics, and data visualization; and, on an as-needed basis, support SIMS assessments, data quality assessments, family planning and HIV/AIDS compliance, PMP development and review, MEL plan development and review, and a variety of other analytical, evaluation, CLA, and capacity building tasks. We will undertake all work within a CLA framework in which best and promising practices are identified and shared collaboratively to facilitate learning and replication.
