Tiba is a multidisciplinary Centre for Tackling Infections to Benefit Africa (the TIBA Centre). TIBA is a partnership between UoE and leading African health policy scientists. TIBA will work on all aspects of infectious diseases management – from basic research to uptake by local communities – in a single, unified framework. LTS International has been contracted to support the UoE based management team prepare and conduct M&E of the TIBA project. The TIBA project has several phases and LTS provides monitoring and evaluation support to each one, and will conduct a final evaluation at project completion in 2021. A theory based approach is being taken to assess progress against an overall theory of change for the TIBA Centre.
