UNAIDS Panel event image

In 2001, UNAIDS was mandated by the United Nations General Assembly to support countries in monitoring progress in the Global AIDS Response and to report back on progress to the General Assembly. Progress has been measured against a set of 2010 and 2015 targets, based on a global monitoring framework which draws on a global indicator set.

How do you define a successful malaria prevention project? One that achieves a 60% decrease in malaria cases? A 75% decrease? 80%?

EnCompass serves in Gender and Quality Improvement advisor roles for the AIDSFree project, which aims to improve the effectiveness of high-impact, evidence-based HIV interventions, and accelerate the speed with which these interventions are brought to scale at the country-level. EnCompass provides capacity development and technical support to USAID missions, host-country governments, and HIV/AIDS implementers. Operating at the local, regional, and national levels, this project builds upon the accomplishments of USAID’s predecessor project, AIDSTAR-ONE.

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. 

Report cover

Over the last 15 years, newborn health has garnered increased attention, and individuals, organizations, and communities of organizations have emerged to work on newborn health and survival at both global and country levels. Save the Children’s Saving Newborn Lives (SNL) program commissioned EnCompass LLC to conduct a series of five organizational network analyses (ONA) to gain insight into the current functioning of newborn communities in Bangladesh, Malawi, Nepal, Uganda, and at the global level.

Everyone seems to be talking about “mobile health”, or mHealth, and exalting the power of ICT for health. Somehow, it seems that if we are not incorporating ICT in our health programs today, we have missed the train to successful health outcomes. So, after a three-year wait for USAID’s decision, I find myself as the manager of a newly-won TASC4-ICT for Health umbrella contract, or prequalification, for USAID.

As a subcontractor to the University Research Corporation, EnCompass developed Care that Counts: An E-Learning Course for QI in OVC Programs. This five-module course on CD-ROM and Web serves national quality improvement teams and program managers working in organizations that implement services for orphans and vulnerable children. The course focuses on planning and advocating for quality, defining quality and establishing consensus on service standards, developing a communications strategy, improving quality at the point of service delivery, and measuring quality.
