    Consultancy to Facilitate National Malaria Case Management Document Revision

    Reference No.: R339

    Period of Performance:

    • This consultancy is for a non-consecutive period of 35 working days starting in October 2020.

As a result, the BAR found that most documents align with WHO guidelines. However, some of these strategic documents are either outdated, or incomplete. In addition, the availability of SOP and job aids as stand-alone documents for use at service points is not proven. As part of the BA desk review, about 26 documents related to case management were reviewed and required different specific actions.
