As Senior Director, Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL), Kevin is responsible for strengthening MEL systems, designing and implementing surveys, and enabling data-driven decision making across the four investment funds.
Kevin has experience working across a broad range of health projects and has led the MEL component of various large-scale programs. Examples relating to neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) include the provision of technical, end-to-end M&E oversight across the ASCEND and ARISE programs in East Africa and South Asia.
