Brown Bag Description

The “Implementation Research Embedded in Integrated Community Case Management (CCM) Program: Improving Data to Improve Programs (CCM-IDIP)” Translating Research into Action (TRAction) project, led by Johns Hopkins University and supported by Save the Children, is working with CCM programs in Malawi, Mozambique, and Ethiopia to use implementation research to improve monitoring, evaluation and use of information.  

Based on findings from a desk review and data quality assessment of the current iCCM Monitoring and Evaluation system in Malawi, an innovative program was developed and piloted to improve data interpretation and use at the health worker level. Findings were presented from an evaluation of this program as well as how this research has been taken up and expanded to other districts by the Malawi Ministry of Health.
