We report on the PBF programs in seven Sahel countries and on the recent developments in Rwanda, which was the first country in Africa that started PBF in 2001 and scaled it up in 2005. We also report on PBF in the education sector in the Central African Republic.
This was the last of 10 PBF courses in 2018 organized by SINA Health with different partners. The Cotonou course took place from the 3rd to the 15th December 2018 with 29 participants from eight countries: Senegal (10x), Mauretania (5x), RCA (3x) Niger (3x), Chad (3x), Cameroon (3x) Mali (1x) and Rwanda (1x). The course was organized by BEST-SD in Benin with the assistance of BASP-96 from Burkina Faso.
The daily evaluations of the course averaged 82%, which is 3.5 points above the average of the 43 previous Francophone courses. The impact of the 75th PBF course has been translated into a good quality of the action plans carried out by the groups of countries (see rapport final du cours).
Twenty-nine participants did the posttest and the average progress compared to the pre-test was 29%. The average score of the post-test was 74%. Eight participants obtained a certificate of distinction with a score of 87% or higher and two participants obtained a certificate of participation of 50% or lower.
