EnCompass is responsible for multiple capacity building activities for the Africa Indoor Residual Spraying (AIRS) II program. Indoor Residual Spraying (IRS) is a highly effective tool in reducing malaria transmission. This program is part of the President's Malaria Initiative, which helps 19 host-countries in Africa and one region in Southeast Asia implement IRS programs and assess their effectiveness.
EnCompass designed and facilitated a consultation in Tunisia that brought together 65 people from 11 countries whose proposals had failed to secure HIV funding from the Global Fund. The objective was to ensure that countries are able to develop quality HIV proposals. EnCompass conducted a study to identify key elements hindering successful proposals. The following year, EnCompass assessed how the participants had used what they learned, finding that 75% of the participants who applied in the next proposal round were successful.
EnCompass supported capacity-building activities under the Uganda Indoor Residual Spraying (IRS) project, part of the Presidential Malaria Initiative (PMI) program in Uganda. This project’s goal is to increase the use of IRS in Uganda, which reduces malaria transmission.
