Technical Assistance

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 and ADVANTAGE consortia partner Cardno designed and wrote two sector-specific GBV Resource Guides for USAID staff: one focused on the Education sector, including school-related GBV; and, the other focused on the Energy and Infrastructure sector. You can access and download the Resource Guides here:

EnCompass co-facilitated a skills-based, practical training course providing USAID staff with guidance on implementing the Gender Equality and Female Empowerment Policy, in order to identify best practices and lessons learned in integrating gender considerations across USAID’s Program Cycle.

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.

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 responsible for guiding and monitoring the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) program’s global capacity-strengthening efforts, in partnership with ICF International. Since 1984, the DHS program has provided technical assistance for more than 300 demographic and health surveys in 90 countries. The program has a longstanding reputation for technical leadership in data collection, analysis, dissemination, and capacity building. The DHS program partners with country counterparts to build capacity all along the survey continuum.

Through USAID/ASSIST, EnCompass helped build the capacity of host-country service delivery organizations in USAID-assisted countries to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, client-centeredness, safety, accessibility, and equity of the health and family services they provide. USAID/ASSIST seeks to ensure the sustainability of these improvements by developing competencies and engaging with host-country governments at the policy level.
