Attend partners health/ camp coordination meetings. supervision visits to the health facility. On job training and mentoring of staff.Check registers and referral notes and make recommendation as necessary. I have learnt a lot on diseases surveillance, disease prevention through community awareness activities as well as vaccination programs. In my current place of work I am part of the senior management and hence the decision making body for our activities on the field. We work as a team and have meetings to plan our activities and report on progress. There is an open house policy which gives each one the opportunity to freely interact and ask for guidance as and when needed. The hardest part of the job is the limitations in resources, both human and material. But we are making the best out the situation we find ourselves. The most enjoyable part is the small victories, like opening the new maternity wing and having deliveries done at the health facilities rather than referring them to the hospital. Doing vaccination campaigns, Nutrition food distribution session.

Monitoring and Evaluation officer (Current Employee) – Sierra Leone – January 10, 2013
Yearly programme review meetings last longer than always planned When expertise from different project discuss together,it help to not only have a mental picture of the programme,but clear on what has always been me as an actor to successes and challenges in Programme. A clear understanding of certain decision taken which can be viewed as frustration by junior level colleagues. When a situation arise to scale down operations,then it has to do with redundancy,who is to go and who should remain in the team when all are very hard working. When promotion is given to a junior colleague as reward for hard work.
