I joined Pharm Access Africa Limited in April 2012 as a monitoring and evaluation intern officer. I learnt a lot from the monitoring and evaluation manager and the whole team who were very welcoming and gained lots of valuable experience in monitoring and evaluation and was part of the team that developed the PAAL SMS commodity tracking system the first of its kind in the industry.
After my internship was completed a position of monitoring and evaluation officer assistant was advertised. After a competitive interview process I got the position and soon after I was appointed the M&E officer lead where I helped set up and roll out the Logistics Management Information System (LMIS) that was used for tracking and monitoring reproductive Health (RH) commodities in health facilities in UNFPA select Counties namely; Kilifi, Kasarani (Ruaka Sub County Nairobi) and Homa Bay.
I worked in this position for the UNFPA 7 th country programme and Kasarani, Homa Bay, Kilifi, Kisumu, Naivasha, Nakuru and Migori for the 8 th country programme up until 30 th August 2017. Following adoption of the system in the above areas, reporting rates have significantly improved from an average of 46% to over 90% in the facilities that are using the SMS reporting system.
During my tenure at Pharm Access Africa Limited I enjoyed the great management, Mentorship and overall culture the very youthful, casual vibe. I enjoyed the team meetings that we had every Monday mornings to discuss goals and where we were at with the project.
