International Treatment Preparedness Coalition


ITPC seeks to engage professional services of a consultant to support an operational assessment of community-led monitoring as it is being implemented in both central Malawi and in Gauteng Province of South Africa. The intent of the study is to document the influence of community-led monitoring and advocacy (CLM) in improving clinic-level quality and accessibility of health services, and to document the practices of CLM that contribute to that success.

As enthusiasm for Community-Led Monitoring (CLM) approaches grow, particularly among the largest bilateral and multilateral global health financing mechanisms, there is need to ensure that high-quality methodologies are not compromised in the rapid expansion of CLM implementation. With 6 years of experience on CLM dating back to the Regional Community Treatment Observatories carried out in West Africa, ITPC has honed a particular CLM methodology that it espouses and shares with partners.
