The Fleming Fund – VFM framework and evaluation

Multi-country

The Project

The Fleming Fund is a £265 million programme funded by the UK government (Department of Health) to invest in improving laboratory capacity for diagnosis and surveillance of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in low-income countries where AMR has a disproportionate impact.
The programme started in 2017 and will last for 5 years. It has various objectives:
• Strengthen surveillance of drug resistance
• Build laboratory capacity for diagnosis
• Collect data on drug resistance
• Enable sharing of data
• Collating and analysing data on sale of antibiotics/antimicrobial medicine
• Advocacy – promoting rational use of antibiotics
• Design a sustainable system for AMR surveillance and data sharing
Working with Itad, LAMP has developed an approach for the VfM aspect of the evaluation of the Fleming Fund and will provide support to implement the VFM component of this four year evaluation.

Highlights

  • Unique opportunity for LAMP to influence the design of the VfM element of the evaluation of this very high profile programme
  • LAMP provided inputs to a learning event for the programme which is using an adaptive management approach to improve impact
  • A literature review of best practice on VFM in fund management informed the evaluation design

Client Testimonial

The framework was very well received by the team.
