KYTS-ACE Endline. Part 1 – Chipata.

The monumental task of undertaking the endline surveys for the KYTS-ACE project is underway and here are some photos of the action courtesy of Rohit who is overseeing the whole process. He is now half way through the 15-hour trip from Chipata in the east to Mongu in the west of Zambia. The enumerators are in place in Chipata and were supported for two days, now we need to do the same in Mongu, the second sample district.

The tools we are using for the endline survey are as follows. The most expensive part of this work is the Household Survey to measure the coverage we have achieved – item 1 in the table below. This involves dropping enumerators off at randomly selected points in the district from where they walk to every third household and request an interview with the households with caregivers of under 5 children.
