OCPH: Monitoring & Evaluation Project

Project Case Study

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.

The Solution

  • 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.
