Summary 

The M&E Officer will be responsible for ensuring technical and monitoring rigor in the planning and scaled execution of projects being implemented at the national, regional, district, and primary healthcare levels. Additionally, liaising with District staff, other partners, and donors regarding technical strategy, monitoring, and evaluation of project deliverables and targets. 


Background 

The mission of Health Access Connect is to link remote communities to healthcare. HAC currently pursues this mission through four programs: 

1. Medicycles: We help remote communities bring government health workers and their medicines to their villages monthly. In these outreach clinics health workers give HIV testing, anti-retroviral treatment, immunizations, perinatal services, family planning, and many other services available in rural health centers. 

2. Technical Advising: We collaborate with Africa Resource Centre (ARC) and the Uganda Ministry of Health to teach and empower PEPFAR implementing partner (IP) organizations to implement alternative drug distribution point models to a) improve a) antiretroviral therapy (ART) and general treatment health service provision and b) decongest health facilities. 

3. Treat & Teach: We improve access to family planning in the communities of Masaka and Kalangala districts by a) providing low-density high-frequency certificate training to health workers, b) setting up outreach clinics in remote communities, c) generating demand by

collaborating with community health workers (VHTs), and d) reducing commodity stock outs by providing buffer stocks and improving commodity tracking at partner health facilities. 

4. Digitalisation of the Health Commodities Supply Chain: In partnership with Signalytic, we are improving the stock visibility in selected Health Facilities in Masaka District Local Government and City. This is a push from the Ministry of Health that will see a move to paperless ordering of Health Facility commodities over time.
