In the year of unification, Save the Children in Uganda (SCiUG) developed a strategic framework that builds both on the strengths of participating members as well as on emerging analyses of the child rights situation that calls for more integrated programming
SCiUG has also continued to scale up its emergency response capacity to deal with emergency contexts, focusing primarily on emergency education and child protection

Inputs & Outputs
Shorter TermResults FrameworksWhere is results monitoring?
Check change in knowledge, behavior, status
Higher level monitoring
Measure outcome indicators : compare with baseline & final targets
From the Monitoring we knew that we were generally carrying out the activities as planned, but wanted to Monitor&Evaluate whether it all had the desired effect/result/outcome/impact
Effects of Behavior Change campaign: … behaviors
=> information needed = population/beneficiary based => sampling needed !
LQAS = Lot Quality Assurance Sampling
Lot = sub county from a district
small sample size, typically 19 per area
comparison between areas (lots) possible
Lot Quality Assurance Sampling
For example, what LQAS can: just by sampling 19 women in a targeted population, at least 92% of the time LQAS will determine correctly whether yes or no these women have adopted the family planning method.
LQAS cannot be used for coverage estimates in lot / district!
Only if it’s above/below target Decision Rule
FP METHODS THAT WERE MEASURED
As the mid-term evaluation of the Family Planning project
Effects/outcomes of project interventions:… behaviors
% of women of reproductive age who report having access to FP services
% of women of reproductive age who were counseled about the birth spacing
Data collection tools: Adapted from FlexFund survey guidelines
Data analysis: Standard LQAS tables in Excel worksheets for analysis & graphs
