Session 1 begins with short Powerpoint presentation on M&E followed by an exercise in data flows. Ask small groups to come up with a diagram that shows how data and information moves between KPs, the HIV & SRH implementing agencies and the provincial and national programme. Be specific about what is collected and identify some key data gaps and duplication of effort.
Then facilitate a discussion about how this data is used - does it return to implementing agencies to assist them to refine their programmes?
Use the report-back from the groups to engender discussion about more effective and efficient ways to collect, analyze and use data.
