The aim of the assessment was to identify gaps and build capacity on areas which the company is not doing well.
JL Consultancy – ‘Consulting is our passion’
To become a leading consultancy firm by providing organisation and project management services in Great Lake Countries, especially countries within the east Africa community and Africa in general.
To provide quality and efficient services to clients on project management.
If one single factor makes us stand out from the crowd of more traditional management consultants and systemic organizational developers, it’s the way we work.
Integrative: We combine management Know-how, expertise and psychosocial skills of our people and consulting teams. As a result, we manage to be not just a sparring partner, voicing clear standpoints regarding content, but also a trainer, facilitator and coach.

For the past four years, JL Consultancy have been doing Baseline Surveys, rapid assessment, an end of project evaluation and Data Quality Assessment on various projects funded by USAID in collaboration with Africare (Mwanzo Bora Nutrition Program), MEASURE Evaluation/ Futures Group International Inc and John Snow Inc/ AIDSTAR- One Project and The Walter Reed Southern Highlands AIDS Program (WRP) under The Henry Jackson Foundation Medical Research International ( HJFMRI) .
Programmes covered were the Nutrition Survey, Care and Treatment, Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission, Home Based Care and provision of nutrition food to People Living with HIV, Trace and Verify for Para Social Workers, Orphan and Vulnerable Children, Provider Initiative Testing and Counselling , Volunteering Testing and Counselling , thus we have experience and exposure in this field and clearly understands well the National Reporting Guidelines and tools developed by the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare especially the tools which monitor and do evaluation of MCH indicators on monthly and quarterly basis which we feel that the baseline survey for HANO will be an integral part of the study.
JL Consultancy has very good experience in Nutrition Baseline Surveys for instance from September 2012 to February 2013,Mwanzo Bora Nutrition Program contracted JL Consultancy to undertake a baseline survey on nutrition in three regions of Dodoma, Manyara and Morogoro and covered eight districts namely Bahi, Chamwino, Mpwapwa, Hanang, Mbulu, Simanjiro, Kilosa and Morogoro rural.
The survey interviewed 4,600 households and the area of interest were looking into :
The objective of the survey was to:
In October and November 2011, JL Consultancy conducted an assessment on Prevention of Maternal to Child Transmission of HIV/AIDS (PMTCT) in collaboration with AIDSTAR-One/ JSI.Inc and USAID. The assessment involved the integration of PMTCT and MCH (RCH) and other services provided in MCH clinics like Family Planning, Immunisation, Child growth and development, monitoring and evaluation, and reproductive health education.
The assessment involved 14 regions in Tanzania. The regions were Arusha, Dar, Mtwara, Mara, Mwanza, Tanga, Mbeya, Iringa, Coast( Pwani),Singida, Tabora, Kigoma,Shinyanga and Kilimanjaro.
Generally the Institutional capacity of JL Consultancy is summarised as follows:
JL Consultancy team is made up of individuals with different expertise, including scientists, medical doctors, nutrition, statisticians, finance, human resource, procurement, sociology, monitoring and evaluation, project management ,laboratory technologists and social research specialists. The team members occasionally have been involved in developing M& E Plans for PMTCT, MCH as well as doing data quality assessment of health facilities which implements PMTCT and MCH, training of District MCH Coordinators on PMTCT and MCH data tools.
JL Consultancy has vast experience and technical expertise in carrying out baseline surveys, data quality assessments, rapid assessments and end of project evaluations which has been acquired through working with USAID implementing partners. USAID through Futures Group International / MEASURE Evaluation has been able to build the relevant skills and experience to JL Consultancy staff that are necessary to strengthen the organization ability to deliver quality services that are in line with USAID standards. JL Consultancy is always focusing on linking the client’s requirement with the organisational competence and allowing a degree of flexibility in case of rain seasons, delays to start the project and other eventualities. Since working with USAID funded projects, JL Consultancy was able to handle all matters from the start to the end in a professional way.
