Lalana Project – Final Report

In 2017, Transaid teamed up with implementing partners ONG Lalana to deliver the ALFA Project (Aro Loza amin’ny Fifamoivoizana An-tsekoly, meaning ‘education and awareness of schoolchildren on road safety’). Funded through Transaid’s Innovation Fund, Lalana’s aim was to reduce the number of road traffic crashes involving primary school children travelling to and from school, in Madagascar’s capital, Antananarivo.

Together with Transaid’s support and Amend’s technical expertise, Lalana implemented a programme aiming to educate students and raise awareness in the entire community, as well as introducing better signage and markings around schools in order to tackle the problem from all sides. However, the project’s educational efforts went beyond the classroom.

MAM evidence brief – key results

This technical brief presents the key results from the MAMaZ Against Malaria (MAM) project which was established in July 2017.

MAMaZ against Malaria is a one year pilot project, funded by the Geneva-based foundation, Medicines for Malaria Venture (MMV). The project aims to devise an evidence-based and sustainable strategy to improve the access of hard-to-reach communities to effective treatment for severe malaria (SM) in a high malaria burden setting.

The project is being implemented by a consortium led by Transaid in partnership with Health Partners Zambia, Development Data and Disacare. The consortium is working in partnership with the Ministry of Health in Zambia, specifically the National Malaria Elimination Centre, and the District Health Management Team for Serenje District.

Vehicle Logbook [Arabic version]

This Logbook is to be used to gather quantitative data to assist senior management to make informed decisions. Data gathered includes distance travelled via odometer readings, number of loading points, number of drivers driving hours and project activity. This data can then be used to produce a series of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), using simple calculations, such as vehicle availability and on time deliveries and more.

H12. Emergency Transport Scheme user survey form

This tool is to be used to gather qualitative and quantitative data from users of an Emergency Transport Scheme. The tool gathers data such as costs, timings and information on health seeking behaviours to inform the intervention as well as to provide information for effective project management.

They have been used in the five year Emergency Transport Scheme (ETS) project which ended in 2018 and aimed to contribute to reducing maternal mortality in Adamawa State, Northern Nigeria. The project partnered with the National Union of Road Transport Workers’ (NURTW) commercial taxi drivers who were trained to provide an affordable, accessible, safe and timely emergency transport service for pregnant women in labour or for those experiencing complications during their pregnancy.
