hi everyone, Rogers Mandu, Busoga Health Forum, quality improvement specialist.
Here are some of the papers from the study https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/?term=waiswa+%2B+codes
Thank you for this great study. Regarding the results, are these difference-of-differences effect sizes (i.e., compared to the control districts)?
Thanks Prof Peter and team, for sharing this "repository"
Yes Alex - it Is cRCT analysis
Thank you Chibuzo
What was the "cycle" of the intervention? That is, how often were the LQAS surveys/BNA/planning/etc. done? Annually?
Flavia Mpanga Kaggwa
Thank you for the great presentation. Has the oversight committee remained in place post the project period? What challenges can be expected to scale this intervention to other parts of the country?
thank you Prof. Waiswa and team. fantastic study!However, I have a concern,I see an increase in treatment of the various conditions, if I got you well,so I thought that since the conditions we are talking about are entirely preventable at household level, and this study had a component of disease prevention, I would expect a reduction in cases treated...that is if the demand side is engaged on prevention.then on supply side, availability of medicines, improved quality of care, improved reporting etc, as you have already highlighted in the results.
Great work and presentation. How did you manage to keep district leadership activated? What challenges did you face from the demand side? Who monitored the different projects (for example ANC, EPI, infections, Nutrition etc)?
Thank you Prof Waiswa
This is very good presentation but most of the data collection tools has not effective to benefits people in particularly country.
one of the challenge of data is shortcut by health workers and ineffective data equipment to capture health data.
Thank you for the responses
Government must be serious on data collection instrument and quality assurance of data
1-The assessment of outcome through LQAS done by the district themselves; why not independent assessment; do you believe it was objective enough knowing that districts were aware of interventions? 2-What explains the very bigh decline in the appropriate treatment for diarrhoea, pneumonia, and malaria in the control districts?
THANK YOU SO MUCH PRESENTERS.
Great presentation. Covid 19 has paused huge obstacles in child health interventions. How did this impact your work/data?
THERE IS STILL A CHALLENGE WITH HMIS TOOLS FOR THE COMMUNITY INTERVENTION. THEY DONT CAPTURE FULLY SOME IMPORTANT INDICATORS LIKE CONSUMPTION FOR THESE COMMUNITY ITEMS LIKE AMOX ORS/ZIN, INSTEAD THEY CAPTURE STOCK OUTS OF THESE ITEMS AND U CANNOT ESTABLISH ACTUAL CONSUMPTION AT VHT LEVEL. THANKS
