SUPA71 conducted an evaluation of the Regional Malaria Civil Society Organization (CSO) Platform which is an entity that supports a network of more than 50 Civil Society Organizations (CSO) in the Regional Artemisinin-resistance Initiative (RAI) implementing countries: Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam. This was conducted during January to April 2020. This evaluation aimed to a) assess the Platform’s objectives and activities set out in the work plan and thereby recommend ways of improving the delivery model in the future, b) evaluate the effectiveness of the Platform in addressing the challenges and bottlenecks encountered in malaria elimination via examination of the Platform’s rationale, relevance to direct and indirect beneficiary needs, and potential for scale-up, c) determine that CSO platform activities were implemented effectively and efficiently to deliver the expected and agreed-upon results, and d) to identify opportunities for cost-saving measures, ensuring the Platform’s accountability to communities, stakeholders, and the Global Fund. SUPA71 used a mixed method to interview the various types of the respondents that involved with the Platform.
In this regard, we would like to thank you to all respondents for their kind information for the study.
