Description de la mission

CIVIL SOCIETY FOR MALARIA ELIMINATION (CS4ME) is the first global platform of civil society organizations engaged in malaria elimination with over 450 members now from 43 countries.

CS4ME's vision is a world free of malaria and aims to:

  • Connect civil society organizations and communities affected by or at risk of malaria on a single platform, build their capacity and enable south-south collaboration and coordination
  • Promote the participation of civil society organizations and local communities beyond service delivery as stakeholders in decision-making processes, strategy development, programming, monitoring, evaluation, and research to complement and strengthen malaria control and elimination while contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • Advocate for sufficient and sustained resource mobilization for malaria control and elimination by prioritizing appropriate allocations to both civil society and communities;
  • Promote universal access and effective use of existing tools, requiring innovative responses that respond to community needs and local conditions;
  • Call for an effective multisectoral response to malaria elimination with civil society and communities as key stakeholders.

The Global Fund is the primary financier of the fight against malaria worldwide. It is important to strengthen malaria civil society participation in Global Fund-supported mechanisms and programs to make them more effective, human rights-based, gender-sensitive, adequately funded, and focused on community needs.

It is important to maintain the gains made by Global Fund-supported programs and to accelerate the response and sustainability. Better structured civil society organizations will be able to play a more visible role in advocacy, mobilization of domestic resources for the scaling up and sustainability of high-impact interventions and also ensure that the most vulnerable populations have access to quality services and care, and take greater ownership of effective prevention and management tools in the fight against malaria. A more structured, trained, and active civil society can help improve malaria control programs and increase impact.

In 2020, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation via its secretariat impact sante Afrique, CS4ME developed its first Strategic Plan 2021-2025, which established the platform’s vision whereby “national civil society and communities are recognized as bold and creative catalysts of change, and are supported to drive people-centered national, regional and global malaria elimination efforts”.  CS4ME mission is “to strengthen, organize and unite civil society, and engage and empower affected communities to be creative, bold, catalysts for change, to accelerate malaria elimination.”

In 2021, under the request its secretariat,  to prepare for the implementation of the strategic plan, CS4ME undertook a capacity assessment exercise supported by the Community Rights and Gender Strategic Initiative of the Global Fund.  It was key to have a clear focus on the interventions. This was immediately followed by support from Expertise France  to develop the CS4ME 2021-2025 Operational plan.

A first TA mission financed by Expertise France-L' Initiative aimed to provide expertise to develop an operational plan and a plan to mobilize resources to implement the CS4ME 2021 - 2025 strategic plan.

Specifically:

  • Support the development of a detailed annual action plan for the strategic plan (for the years 2022, 2023, 2024 and 2025) including priority activities, budget estimates, timelines, human resource requirements and stakeholders
  • Support the development of tools that will facilitate the implementation of the operational plan
  • Support the development of a resource mobilization plan

Following a Technical assistance funded by Expertise France-L’ Initiative and Global Fund CRG,  

the following results were obtained:

Therefore, the CS4ME Operational Plan has been developed by an active working group, representing CS4ME’s steering committee, secretariat, and its members. The plan lays out clear steps for how CS4ME can implement its strategic plan, as well as continue to strengthen the capacity of the platform itself, as well as that of its members to effect change on the ground. However, in order to support the implementation of the Operational Plan, further assistance is needed, particularly to facilitate rollout of the plan among its members, strengthen capacity in key areas critical to success of the strategic plan, and to finalize internal mechanisms to support implementation.

CS4ME now has an operational plan, resource mobilisation plan and however it does not yet all the tools or structures in place necessary to implement it effectively. Continued support is necessary to follow up on the plan’s development to support the secretariat to operationalise the plan, which also includes the capacity building plan.

Description du projet ou contexte

  • Objectif général de la mission

The overall objective of the TA is to support CS4ME to prepare for the successful implementation of its Operational Plan 2021-2025.

  • Objectifs spécifiques :

 The specific objectives are:

  • Objective 1: Elaborate the CS4ME Advocacy & Communication plan of the CS4ME strategic plan and Key tools to promote CS4ME
  • Objective 2: To strengthen the capacity of CS4ME secretariat and members to in priority areas essential to the success of the operational plan; 
  • Objective 3: To finalise CS4ME’s sub-grant mechanism

Résultats attendus:

  • Objective 1: Elaborate the CS4ME Advocacy & Communication plan of the CS4ME strategic plan and Key tools to promote CS4ME

Activities

  • Conduct a quick situation analysis of the communications and advocacy needs to meet the CS4ME strategic plan goal
  • Develop in an interactive manner the CS4ME advocacy and communication plan  of the CS4ME strategic plan
  • Finalize  the draft  of the plan and tools with CS4ME working group and secretariat
  • Develop 4 tools that will support the communication and advocacy plan

Objective 2: To strengthen the capacity of CS4ME secretariat and members to in priority areas essential to the success of the operational plan; 

Many of CS4ME’s members are extremely skilled in various areas necessary to achieve its strategic plan, however, some may be strong in some areas, but less so in others. Other members are more nascent organisations, and require support to be able to contribute to the plan effectively. Technical assistance is required to develop materials, deliver training, and create a mentoring network to support members to be able to :

  • (a) Develop and manage projects;
  • (b) Mobilise their own resources; and
  • (c) Communicate and advocate.

These skill areas are critical to the implementation of the operational plan in that they are considered to fundamental skills that other work will build on. These areas are also highlighted as priority areas for capacity strengthening in a member survey.

The training is expected CS4ME members who expressed needs and provide the fundamentals in each area. At minimum, by the end of each training, members will be expected to have a basic but solid understanding of key concepts and terminology, expectations of donors, and a chance to reflect on where they are and what they need to do in order to meet those expectations. The added value of coordinating and working together under the CS4ME umbrella will also be emphasised. Based on observations of members, the following learning objectives are proposed for each training:

  1. Project design and management: Participants will be able to:
  2. Design a logical framework for a project
  3. Create a project work plan
  4. Create a monitoring and evaluation plan
  5. Develop a basic project report.

Resource mobilisation: Participants will be able to:

  1. Understand different types of funding available, which is appropriate for them, and how they can adapt this information to their country context
  2. Understand the minimum requirements to submit a proposal and assess their own organisation’s readiness
  3. Draft their organization’s capacity statement
  4. Deliver an “elevator pitch” of their project idea
  5. Use a template to write a simple funding proposal.

Communication and advocacy: Participants will be able to:

  1. Deliver an “elevator pitch” of CS4ME and their organisation’s contribution to malaria elimination, based on communication plan
  2. Develop a basic problem tree and stakeholder analysis
  3. Use a template to develop a basic advocacy message and strategy
  4. Use a template to write a success story.

Activities

  • Use the results of the member survey (July 2021) to understand current capacity in priority areas, and seek exemplars of high performance to use as case studies
  • Develop draft training materials in:

a.       Project development and management

b.       Resource mobilisation for their own organisation

c.       Advocacy and communication Fundamentals

  • Facilitate the trainings virtually

Objective 3: To finalise CS4ME’s sub-grant mechanism

CS4ME envisions being able to channel funding to its members to be able to carry out community-level advocacy or impact projects. This mechanism was designed during the operational planning process, but as it was not a planned activity under the current technical assistance, there was not enough time to finalize the tools, train the Secretariat, and introduce the mechanism to members. The mechanism is expected to consist of a manual, outlining policies and step-by-step processes, including the necessary forms and templates, as well as a simple but robust tracking tool and filing system to support management.

Activities

  1. Conduct a quick analysis on the best practices around sub grants mechanism and support for CSOs
  2. Develop the CS4ME sub-grant management manual and a tool  (“sub-grant mechanism”)
