Intégration de la vaccination et de la planification familiale

Dans le cadre d’un élargissement géographique de l’intégration de la vaccination et de la planification du programme VIVO, CARE Niger a initié une recherche formative dans le district sanitaire de Gaya en vue de mettre en œuvre un projet de promotion des méthodes modernes de contraception dans dix(10) CSI selon des critères bien précis. L’objectif est de faire une analyse situationnelle au niveau des aires de santé et des établissements de santé communautaires afin d’identifier les obstacles structurels et socio-culturels ainsi que ceux qui sont liés au genre, qui empêchent l’accès aux services de planification familiale et de vaccination et qui pourraient constituer un obstacle à une intégration réussie de ces services.

Le constat des données de l’OMS de 2015, selon lesquelles le Niger a un taux de mortalité maternelle élevé : 553 décès maternels pour 100000 naissances vivantes dû à un taux de prévalence contraceptive les plus bas dans la région (12%). Alors que le taux de vaccination est de 68%, ont dû être des déterminants majeurs du programme VIVO au Niger.

Les données (sur le terrain) recueillies dans le district sanitaire de Gaya, serviront de base sur la mise en œuvre du projet d’élargissement géographique de l’intégration de la vaccination et de la planification. [95 pages]

Rapport de l’Evaluation des Prestataires des Centres Appuyes par CARE sur les Methods Contraceptives de Longue Duree

CARE Niger dans le cadre du projet Vivo, avait organisé en septembre et octobre 2016 une formation des prestataires des formations sanitaires d’intervention du projet. Cette formation avait porté sur la technologie contraceptive et l’intégration des services de planification familiale et de vaccination. Ainsi 21 prestataires ont acquis des connaissances et des compétences en technologie contraceptive. A la suite de cette formation, des supervisions ont été organisées par le staff clinique du projet.

La présente évaluation externe vise à apporter un autre regard et une autre appréciation des compétences transmises au cours de cette session de formation et leur utilisation dans les centres de santé. Ainsi du 09 au 16 aout 2017 a été menée une évaluation de tous les prestataires formés par le projet sur ces sites d’intervention. Elle a été menée par un (01) consultant venu du Burkina Faso et la responsable de la santé de la reproduction du district sanitaire de Gaya. [8 pages]

Emergency cash transfers, nutrition and livelihood assistance for chronically food insecure households in Malawi (2016-17)

In May 2016, the Government of Malawi (GoM), assessed 6.5 million people out of total population of 16.8M (39 percent) would not be able to meet their annual food requirements during the 2016/17 consumption period. Additionally, over 1.8 million people were in need of agricultural inputs to restore their livelihoods. About 31 per cent of the cultivated land was affected by the drought, of which 13 per cent was severely affected. Poor nutrition and increased mortality rates were of particular concern in 24 out of a total of 28 districts. Approximately 975,000 children aged 6-23 months and pregnant and lactating women were particularly at risk of food insecurity and malnutrition and requiring nutritional treatment.

The high level of food insecurity was due to two consecutive years of below average production of all key agricultural crops. In 2014/15 Malawi had the worst growing season for seven years, and this was followed by the worst floods in history in January 2015 and then widespread prolonged dry spells. Malawi was then severely impacted by one of the strongest El Niño events in 35 years. This climactic phenomenon has brought below average rainfall in the central and southern regions, and higher than normal rainfall in the north of the country. In response the food insecurity, the President of Malawi declared a state of disaster on 12 April 2016.

In order to address the significant challenges posed by El Niño in Malawi, CARE proposed a comprehensive cash transfer, nutrition and livelihoods response to reduce the vulnerability crisis-affected people, especially women, girls and boys in Salima. The project focuses on three immediate outcomes. First, the project will improve capacity of at-risk populations to meet basic needs and reduce negative coping strategies through cash transfers. Second, the project will focus on improving the nutritional status of women and children through awareness raising, demonstrations of best practices related to food preparing and provision of kitchen garden inputs. Finally, the project will increase the self-reliance of at risk population through the provision of seeds and tools as well as training on post-distribution harvest and storage techniques. [19 pages]

Implementation of Social Accountability Framework (ISAF) Midterm Review

To improve the voice and accountability in sub-national democratic development, public service delivery and functions of the Cambodian sub-National Government, the Strategic Framework for Social Accountability (SAF) and a three year plan for the Implementation of the Strategic Framework (I-SAF) in 2015-2017, were designed through a highly consultative process between development partners, civil society and the Secretariat of the National Committee for sub-National Democratic Development (NCDDS). The I-SAF plan was endorsed in a joint meeting of the government and civil society in June 2013 and the SAF was approved by the Royal Government of Cambodia on the 11th of July 2013.The SAF and the I-SAF have been fully incorporated into the Second Implementation Plan (IP3-II) of the National Program for sub-National Democratic Development (NP-SNDD).

What Is the Effect of the Reform ‘Implementation of the Social Accountability Framework’ in the Cambodian Highlander Villages?

In the absence of relevant knowledge, how are citizens going to enjoy their right to public service delivery? It is argued that decentralization of power, such as making local official politics more open and transparent together with an effort to streamline political decisions with citizens’ preferences, is an efficient way to fight poverty (Raffinot, 2015:199). This works only if it is associated with the reinforcement of citizen’s control over the power1. (Raffinot, 2015:199). To alleviate poverty through the reinforcement of citizen’s control must start with their enhancement of relevant knowledge.
The purpose of this study is to measure the effect of an information campaign on Cambodian citizens’ rights and standards in commune councils, primary schools, and health centers. The study is a quasi-experiment that is designed in accordance with the implementation of the reform I-SAF. The information campaign consists of public posters and meetings held that shall disperse the Cambodian citizens’ rights and standards in commune councils, primary schools, and health centers.
