methods
Methods

Time period: June-August, 2009

Pre-test post-test survey

  • Create a survey to test knowledge and self-reported FP utilization of individuals in districts where film has been shown/not shown

Comparison of FP utilization in case and control districts

  • Use available baseline data to determine effects of film on utilization in health centers
available data
Available data
  • Baseline information about family planning knowledge and utilization for 6 districts in the country was collected in Summer, 2008
  • We have support on the ground now who is in the process of showing the film
  • In-country support is also gathering baseline information about family planning utilization in local health structures
  • DHS survey will be available in January, 2010
lingering questions
Lingering Questions
  • What would be the best way, if any, to incorporate any DHS data into the results?
  • What information should I be seeking from in-country support with regards to baseline data?
  • As long as we find villages with similar demographic and socioeconomic status, is this a valuable way to establish case and control groups?
  • Better ideas from more experienced, more quantitative-minded people out there?!!!
