Addendum 4: The President’s Malaria Initiative: Evaluation & Research-to-Use Implementation Project

EOI Submission Deadline: October 24, 2019

We seek creation of a malaria evaluation and research partnership, via an organization or group of organizations, to conduct future program evaluation and research activities, establish consensus for new collaborative research ideas, synthesize and conduct metaanalysis of existing malaria data, and provide solutions to improve evaluation and research data utilization. Partners with specific skills and expertise in program evaluation and research may pair with others with complimentary skills and expertise that address the full set of required work and have or are able to develop the needed connectivity to in-country research partners. We also expect the partner to provide multidisciplinary research solutions to malaria control and prevention through the integration of findings from PMIsupported OR studies and those supported by other malaria funding partners including Department for International Development (DFID), Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), The Special Program for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases TDR and World Health Organization (WHO). The overarching need is to conduct OR and facilitate appropriate use of OR findings including establishment of critical linkages between experienced malaria research institutions in the north with research centers in the PMI countries that will provide the necessary knowledge, tools, and evidence-based strategies for use by government organizations and health care institutions to control and treat malaria.
