comunity diagnosis_SMART_objective _goal_Target by ajalan847


									A good objective should be: SMART
• Specific: for conditions the project seeks to change • Measurable: quantitative indicators (precise, can be aggregated, and further statistically processed), but quantification may be difficult. Use also qualitative indicators! • Attainable: at reasonable costs and method • Relevant: to the management information needs

• Timely: collected and reported

• General Objective – what are the wider problems, which your project will help resolve? • Specific Objectives – what are the intended immediate effects on the project area and the target group, what improvements or changes will the project bring about?

General objectives
• To improve the health status of women in kaski districts by end of 2009

Specific objectives
• “To improve the health condition of pregnant or delivered women” • “To reduce delivery related complications” • “To improve nutritional status of pregnant women” • “To ensure, proper health care during and after delivery” • “To increase contraceptive prevalence rate”

Specific objectives
• To change the knowledge and attitude of mothers regarding exclusive breast feeding”

• “To change the practices regarding breastfeeding in recently delivered mothers”

A combination of purposefully designed actions that transforms the various inputs into specific outputs.

• Input

• Output

• Impact

All resources (Human, financial and other) that are allocated to specific activities. Eg: (health workers, educators, organizatoin,etc)

Combination of short term results that are immediate, visible, concrete and tangible consequences of completed project activities. Eg: (trainings, medical checkups, vaccination, treatment, supplement nutrition)

Medium-term developmental results benefiting an identified target population that are achievable within the time frame of the project and are the logical consequence of achieving a specified combination of short-term results (outputs). Eg: (normal delivery, fully immunized children, no complications)

Broader, higher level, long-term effects or consequences of the project. Long-term results usually reach society as a whole and are the logical consequence of achieving a series of medium and short term results. Eg:

•Reduced morbidity •Reduced mortality •Increased in ANC visits •Increased in CPR

Objectives and Targets are expressed in terms of expected values of indicators by the reference time of the plan / programme”

Evaluating action


Action Interaction with community leaders Thinking what can be investigated and where (objectives) Planning the survey and questionnaire

Planning action and health program Feedback to relevant individuals & groups and obtain their interpretation Writing report

Training interviewers Pre-testing Reworking survey instruments

Analysis of data and thinking out the implication
Executing survey


First step
• Introduce yourselves: – Who you are – What you plan to do – Present your letter of introduction – Obtain permission from concerned authority • Build rapport – Enlist local resources – Recognise the community support and cooperation during the course of field work – Begin informal collection of information including significant history of VDC, community norms, security situation and safety plan etc. • Arrange logistics – Work out arrangement for food and lodging • Finalize your group work plan and daily schedule

Second step
• Prepare Social Map of VDC (Participatory method) • Observe and note – Topographical features, landmarks (river, mountain, roads, trails, tap, schools etc.) – Administrative offices – Health facilities: Hospitals, Medical halls, Health post, Sub health post, Outreach clinics EPI centres etc. • Get information on – Health personals- both formal and non-formal • Identify the clusters of population • Obtain location and numbers of houses and population from VDC office

• Refine your questionnaires to make it appropriate for the local context
– Use households which will not be in your formal survey

• Discuss with each other
• Revise questionnaire as needed

Fourth step
• Obtain secondary data you need for planning survey
– Vital statistics – Population – Total, Ethnicity, no. of households, geographic distribution – Age, sex if available – Migration data – Births and deaths

• Define catchments area population for VDC for health post or sub health post

Fifth step (or later)
• Visit all health facilities, both formal and non-formal to collect – Morbidity data- 10 most common conditions – Mortality data- Most serious diseases • Use this information to – Compare data from formal and non-formal sources • Are they seeing the same patients? Why? Is there competition? Collaboration? Why not? – Later, compare the above secondary data with morbidity and mortality data collected during formal household survey to estimate or calculate health service utilization rates. – Are some ethnic groups left out? Why? Geography ? Poor? Marginalised groups?
Use Morbidity/ mortality data from all sources, use it along with your primary data for prioritisation of for health problems

Sixth step
• Carry out survey (Data collection) • Check your data every night and correct error

Seventh step
• Do preliminary data analysis

Eighth step
– First community presentation: Sharing of findings with key stakeholders of the community – Prioritize problems with community – Plan for micro health project with the participation of community/stakeholders

Ninth step
Micro- Health Project – Planning, – Implementation evaluation and – Report

Tenth step
Final community presentation: Sharing of experiences and major findings of the CD exercise Suggestions to the community for health promotion Vote of thanks
