In addition, the project conducted routine data quality assessments and regular supportive supervision visits to assess and support civil society organization monitoring and evaluation capacity. Areas in which civil society organizations were supported included data collection and analysis, data quality assurance, and a special emphasis on gender-based analysis and use of data to inform decisions. In the final months of 2011 and early 2012, the project planned to conduct lot quality assurance sampling in 10 districts in tandem with fund grantees and district governments, to strengthen the measurement of outcomes resulting from fund activities.
Through the second activity, the Civil Society Fund Technical Management Agent project, ensured the harmonization of fund operational procedures and provides technical and institutional management services of the fund. This included providing technical support to the fund’s civil society organization and local government grantees, large-scale and equitable geographic coverage of grantee activities, and high-quality service delivery, as well as strengthening civil society organization leadership and management. Civil society organizations were supported to implement activities that support national HIV/AIDS and orphans and other vulnerable children responses. The areas covered included prevention, care, protection and support to affected and infected populations, and treatment.
Major interventions implemented by grantees included promoting HIV counseling and testing, prevention of mother-to-child transmission, behavior change communication, promotion of sexual and reproductive health, pediatric AIDS services, and support to orphans and vulnerable children and their households.
