Assisting the Executive Leadership of the Organisme Catholique pour la Promotion Humaine with a regulatory compliance requirement for their parent organization, Caritas International. Accordingly, OCPH – Caritas Guinea required an independent evaluation of their response to the Ebola Epidemic in order to determine whether their response activities/controls were adequate in comparison to their stated program objectives.
Design and implement a monitoring tool for the response to the Ebola Epidemic in Guinea due to the resurgence of the virus after the passing of a certain period of calm.
Ensure that the monitoring and evaluation response was in compliance with global best practices, national laws and regulations, and local cultural context.
We designed an risk management framework using a hybrid of elements including best practices promulgated by the World Health Organization, the Center for Disease Control (United States), and the Rand Corporation.
Evaluated the actual epidemic response activities/controls against the designed framework elements.
The client was provided with value-added recommendations to assist them with feedback of their performance on the aforementioned Ebola epidemic response; and more importantly, guidelines for additional control measures and management actions to implement in order to mitigate their response to future epidemics.
