issues arising
Issues arising
  • Inappropriateness of some of the Bristol indicators to the national situation (particularly housing and sanitation) (global vs. national standards)
  • Limitation in restricting statistical analysis to DHS data (richer and more recent sources available
  • Data from DHs (2004/5) and HBS (2000/1) now quite dated; results of new HBS expected in 7/08
  • Unwieldy/overly complex guidelines /templates and tables
  • Some requested data (particularly on budgets) impossible to get
  • Policy processes and links to action not a straightforward as guidelines suggest
  • Unwise separation of statistical and policy teams (as policy team also working on ‘evidence’)
next steps
Next steps
  • National teams (statistics and policy) to participate in NY meeting (April)
  • Policy chapters to be revised, finalized and synthesized (April/May)
  • Policy and statistical reports to be merged and results discussed at national stakeholders’ workshop (end May 08)
  • Final report expected by June 2008, with advocacy materials to be developed thereafter
