This blog post was written in collaboration with Forum One in support of our USAID TASC4 ICT for Health contract.

At EnCompass, we believe in the power of technology- to connect people, to promote progress, and to improve communities. In order to share our knowledge and lessons learned, we recently launched a web series focused on Information Communication Technology (ICT) for health. Each month, we present a new topic designed to help health experts in the field better leverage technology for improved project outcomes.

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. EnCompass is the prime contractor, and leads a partnership of superstar organizations that represent ICT excellence.

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.

As an extension of a multi-year global learning program to augment the World Bank’s HIV in the Workplace efforts, EnCompass developed a six-module e-learning solution that served as a resource for HIV advocates trained in face-to-face workshops by EnCompass, and as orientation and training for those HIV advocates new to this role. The highly participatory and dynamic course covers topics including the role of the HIV/AIDS Task Team Leader, care and support for people living with HIV, stigma, and discrimination.
