ARISE NTD Coverage Evaluation – Cost Analysis

Multi-country

The Project

Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD) can be prevented, controlled, and eliminated by an appropriate combination of interventions, if appropriate tools and commodities are available. A fundamental step for monitoring the success of NTD programmes is to know the coverage of preventive chemotherapy distribution. The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) commissioned Kantar to conduct a coverage evaluation survey to its Accelerate Resilient, Innovative, and Sustainable Elimination of NTDs (ARISE-NTDs) project in four African countries: Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, and Uganda. The ARISE-NTDs project will run for 4.5 years (2021 and end December 2025). LAMP Development is conducting a costing analysis as part of this evaluation survey.

Client Testimonial

  • Lamp Development provided expertise to help shape our VFM Approach. They worked in a collaborative style, built a strong working relationship with staff and produced practical outputs which is exactly what we asked for. The outputs have already been used by our Project Managers to improve how we report VfM within on-going projects and words have also been included to increase our VfM scoring within bids. Thanks for all the help!

  • We worked with LAMP for an evaluation of an adolescent suicide prevention project in Kazakhstan. LAMP were very professional in defining the scope of the cost-effectiveness stream of work, in dealing with the client, and in delivering within a quick time-frame when the data did arrive! We would work with them again. 

    - Health Team Leader, Itad
  • LAMP’s project objectives were achieved, and we received positive feedback from DFID on the final output. The report led to some interesting discussions with DFID and between partners. The number-crunching and the organization of data was excellent. I think we worked very well together. Jennifer and Susie were always prompt and responsive.

    - Senior manager – M&E, KEEP
  • The analysis LAMP made on the case study was very useful for the implementing partners and for users of the report to see the impact of the interventions in monetary and statistical terms. The benefits of both interventions were clearly seen. LAMP were very proactive in data collection and were flexible with regards to challenges in obtaining required data; they were quick to come up with alternative methods to capture data and were able to make use of the limited data available.

    - Crown Agents
  • The framework was very well received by the team. The engagement was carried out in a planned, consultative and thorough manner.  LAMP’s communication style, interaction with partners, response timeliness are all excellent.
