Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation of the COVID-19 Response in the Africa Region
KU’s World Health Organization Collaborating Centre worked with partners at the WHO Regional Office for Africa to monitor and evaluate the COVID-19 response with partners in African countries. The KU Center team, led by senior advisor Stephen Fawcett and doctoral student Ruaa Hassaballa, were co-authors of the recently published “Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation of the COVID-19 Response in the Africa Region” in the journal Health Promotion Practice. This project helped build the capacity of WHO and country partners to systematically reflect on patterns in the COVID-19 response and identify lessons learned and implications for practice. A case example of the COVID-19 response in Senegal was featured in this report. KU’s WHO Collaborating Centre is a program of the Center for Community Health and Development at KU.
