What

we have

learned


“Wemeasureprogresstosatisfyourownneed. Wemeasure to check thatwe—the community—are moving in the direction and at the speed

thatwe have chosen.”


“Measurement is an essential part

of every learning cycle”


4 reasons to measure progress.


1

In order to learn from our experience so that we can do it better the next time.


2

To be able to focus the effort thatwestillneed to maketo achieveour objective


3

To celebrateourprogress!


4

To be able to share

ourprogresswithothers.


Our

starting point


Everycommunity has withinitselfthe capacity to measure the progessitismakingtowardsitsdream.


Some questions


Who has the main responsibility for your health?


And who has the main responsibility for checking up

on the current state of yourhealth?


So how wouldyoufeel if an external organisation wouldtakeresponsibility for measuring the progress of yourhealth? 


Our principles


Ownership by the communityitselffor itshealth and for monitoring itshealthisat the heart of the matter for us.


Each group owns the indicators for which it has the prime responsibility.


Our proposal


We measure the progress of a facilitated community project on two levels


1

At the level of faciltation and its delivery


2

Atcommunitylevel


1

At the level of facilitation and its delivery

  • Indicators to demonstrateprogress:

  • The number of communitiesthatdevelop and implementtheir action plan.

  • The number of communitiesthattransfertheirskills.

  • The number of facilitatorstrained.

  • The number of support team competent to organise and to implement a facilitatedprocess.

  • The number of staff in health zones whoown and practice SALT.

  • The number of operational meetings.

  • The number of organisations whoown and practice SALT.

  • Number of papers/knowledgeassetscirculated.


1

At the level of facilitation and its delivery

  • Base line levels

  • Base line levelsare usually ‘zéro’ for the first ‘SALT’ project in an area.


1

At the level of facilitation and its delivery

  • Targets

  • Partners to definebased on theirexperience.

  • Targetsrelated to the environment, externalfactors and risks to the project.


1

At the level of facilitation and its delivery

  • Examples to demonstrateprogress:

  • Documentation par photo des plans d’action;

  • Système d’information local géré par la communauté;

  • Interviewes par vidéo sur actions et résultats;

  • Liste de participation

  • Auto-évaluations des facilitateurs

  • Auto-évaluation des équipes de soutien;

  • Rapports des visites, réunions, rencontres

  • Vérification des plan d’extension

  • Cartographie de transfert horizontale


1

All of these are OURresponsability


2

Atcommunitylevel

  • Indicators:

  • Eachcommunity identifies for itself 1-2 indicators for each of its 3 priority practices.

  • => Eachcommunitywilldecide for themselves and will have responsibility to measurebetween 3 and 6 indicators.


2

Atcommunitylevel

  • Base line level

  • The communitydecidesupon and measures the base levels.

  • The base levels are illustrated by the level of the practise in the Self Assessmenttoday.


2

At communitylevel

  • Targets

  • The communitydecidesupon and measures the base levels.

  • The targets are illustrated by the targetlevel of the Self Assessment for the practice.


2

At communitylevel

  • Means of verification

  • The communitydecides how theywilldetermineprogress and theymake the measurements.


  • We, as facilitators/partners

  • can use the experiences of othercommunitiesto inspire, but not to impose.


2

All of theseare the responsability of the community.


How can the partners contribute?


2

At communitylevel

  • Theycanadd the indicatorsthat are important for theirpurposes.

  • Theypropose theseindicatorsto the community to support theirownindicators

  • Theyoffertheir support to gatherthis information.

  • Theysharetheseindicatorsregularlywith the community.


An example


The community chooses to work on three priority practices for comprehensive vaccination.


1

We acknowledge and accept.

2

We comply with the vaccination schedule.

6

We mobilise resources.


  • For eachpriority practice, the community identifies :

  • targetlevel for the practice in the Self Assessment.

  • 1 or 2 indicators

  • the base level

  • the target for theirchosen time period

  • the means of verification


1

We acknowledge and accept.

Base level: 3

Target level: 4

2

We comply with the vaccination schedule.

Base level: 1

Target level: 3

6

We mobilise resources.

Base level: 2

Target level: 4


1

We acknowledge and accept.

Indicator:Number of parents whoagree to the vaccination of theirchildren/ Number of parents withchildren to bevaccinated.

2

We comply with the vaccination schedule.

Indicator:Number of parents whocomplywith the vaccination schedule/ Number of parents withchildren to bevaccinated.

6

We mobilise resources.

Indicator: Sum of money in the bankaccount to pay for the vaccination of children.

During the monthlymeeting and home visits


UNICEF et the Health Districts measure (for example):

—the percentage of motherswithchildrenagedbetween 12 and 23 monthswho live within 5 kms (or a 1 hourwalk) of a vacccination station.

—the percentage of childrenagedbetween 12 and 23 monthswho have been completelyvaccinated.

—the percentage of childrenagedbetween12 and 23 monthswho havereceived DTC1/Penta1.

—the percentage of childrenagedbetween12 and 23 monthswho have received DTC3/Penta3.


  • Through the use of thesemethods of verification:

  • Family enquiry LQAS

  • FOSA enquiry

  • Qualitative enquiry for SPP


This information issharedregularly

with the community for 2 reasons:


1

To stimulate an in-depth discussion during the next Self Assessmentbased on evidence


2

To update the action and the plan to measureprogress by the community


And the community?


The communitybecomes more skillful, confident and strongevenafter the completion of the project


And the communitywilltransfertheseskills

naturally to othercommunities.

And for the project

SPP/ GCSE


1

Wemeasure the indicators for implementation


2

DRC Competencewillbringtogether

the action plans, indicators and resultsatcommunitylevel

through photos, videos and other qualitative methods.


3

And UNICEF and ESP willmeasure

the indicators of the study.
