Since 2003, Global Health Action has offered regular Design, Management, and Evaluation (DM&E) courses in Africa. To date, there have been more than 20 DM&E courses, which have trained health professionals, program managers, and community leaders from 30 African countries. Annual courses designed for English- or French-speakers have been held in Kenya, Ghana, and Senegal, with other countries scheduled for coming years.

The course covers the fundamental concepts and tools for developing, managing, and sustaining HIV/AIDS programs. The course addresses four interrelated topics:

  • Leadership and management of social change organizations
  • Program planning and project design, with a focus on HIV/AIDS program
  • Proposal writing
  • Project monitoring and evaluation

Course participants acquire knowledge and skills that are applicable to existing or newly-designed projects or programs. The course also specifically addresses the challenges and factors that influence the success of Africa-based programs and projects.
