Monitoring & Evaluation & Transparency
NGO / Donor Report Writer
Many organisations struggle to capture their operational data on the fly, and convert them into strategic wisdom and quality reports. This Excel spreadsheet fetches info automatically from project or programme staff and has full reports for Finance, Programme and Strategy managers. Crucially, it gives organisations a new and powerful way to demonstrate their force, reach, visibility, transparency, participation, impact and value.
HIV / AIDS
HR managers want their AIDS workplace programmes to succeed. However, a lifestyle change programme is the most complex, and most challenging, exercise the company can face. This set of Excel tools offers templates and guides for designing, delivering and demonstrating successful prevention, treatment and care programmes. Intended originally to help organisations win funding for their workplace programmes, the toolkit addresses the problematic quantitative and qualitative challenges HR and EAP officers face. Especially, the toolkit helps HR managers “mainstream” their work.
KAP surveys are essential to prepare the way for customised leadership training and peer education. However, most KAP surveys are high in cost and low in value. This Excel-based KAP survey tool is a fully-automated system that supplies the questions for the answers HR managers need and has the built-in reports the HR manager wants.
Managers cannot support workplace programmes they do not understand. These tools allow HR Managers to plan, schedule and implement high-quality training for the organisation’s leaders and managers, and comes equipped with a best-practice curriculum.
Peer Education / VCT Register
Peer Education is the strongest workplace behaviour change programme for reducing the risk of HIV/AIDS. It offers the best chance for an effective prevention programme that is economical and efficient. However, success depends on a quality curriculum supported by inspired peer educators matched to structured groups with good scheduling, low absenteeism and high VCT. These tools help participants perform at their best and HR Managers to report the impact and manage the programme.
HIV+ Treatment Register
To give HIV+ staff the best treatment they can within the limited time they have, occupational health nurses need good case histories that protect patient confidentiality. Nurses also want to report their caseload to the company. This Excel-based treatment database covers a range of AIDS prevention, treatment, symptomatic and counselling interventions, with some important innovations. Disclosure by the patient - essential for longer and happier life - is monitored. The effectiveness of different medication is reported, helpful for clinical trial purposes. Management reports are built-in and automated, meaning nurses can focus on their patients and save on administration.
