18 months have gone so fast! Suddenly it’s time to leave and say good bye to so many friends that we feel as if we have known for years. The last M&E Technical Working Group was held in Zomba, the old colonial capital of Malawi (then Nyasaland). As usual for the Brits it is set in a high, cooler location with less Malaria. We had an extra day to finish off the Centralised Data Base submission, the Data Quality Assurance Program, develop a job description for a National M&E Coordinator and other items. It was also an open secret that some surprise was being organised, with Debbie and Helen being invited along as well. Next Stop Geelong.
