Malawi EMPOWER Project

The Expanding Malawi HIV/AIDS Prevention with Local Organizations Working for an Effective Epidemic Response (EMPOWER) aims at stopping HIV transmission and preventing new HIV infections, particularly among AGYW (10–24 years old) and men.

As part of strengthening its data management and reporting system, Malawi EMPOWER’s Strategic Information Unit conducted Routine Data Quality Assessments (RDQAs) at randomly selected sites across its two implementing districts (Machinga and Zomba) from 27th June to 1st July 2022. The assessment focused on the April - June 2022 reporting period (Financial Year 2022 -Quarter 3). All collected and reported data for the review period was assessed to determine whether it was fit for the Financial Year 2022—Quarter 3 reporting purposes; identify potential quality issues and their causes; and developed action plans to address any identified problems. The tools used to conduct the RDQAs included the FHI 360 M&E System Assessment Tool and the Data Verification Improvement Tool Version 2.0 - all Microsoft Excel-based formats.
