Arise Fellows Complete M&E Workshop

Last Friday, December 8th, was the culmination of a week-long workshop for the McGoldrick Professional Development Program in Public Health, operating under the aegis of HSPH and the Africa Research, Implementation Science, and Education (ARISE) Network. 

Seven McGoldrick/ARISE fellows traveled to the School to attend a workshop on Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E), led by Sarah Anoke and Marcello Pagano, in conjunction with Professor Wafaie Fawzi. The fellows were trained in advanced research methods for assessing health outcomes and measuring and evaluating new and existing intervention programs. Upon conclusion of the workshop, the fellows returned home to adapt and implement the curricula at their home institutions. Dr. Anoke will be traveling to each institution to help in the deployment and institutionalization of the M&E course.

The McGoldrick/ARISE fellows joined us from the Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences in Tanzania, the University of Botswana, the Rwanda Ministry of Health, the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, the Addis Continental Institute of Public Health in Ethiopia, and the University of Ibadan in Nigeria.

If you currently work in, or have experiences related to biostatistical capacity building, Dr. Anoke welcomes a conversation as she works to document and disseminate her team’s capacity-building work. She can be reached at
