Notes from the field - Afghanistan, October 2013

Entry 1 from Chris Morry.

Warm greetings to all on the eve of my departure. I'll be flying to Kabul for a polio communication review and then on to India for some quick meetings with UNICEF and the CORE India polio project. I plan to post brief messages as regularly as I can as a way of capturing some of the process and issues faced by a review team once on the ground. I'm hoping some of this will be of use and interest to some of you.

Our objective in this review (I am joining a panel focused on the review upon arrival) is to look at several areas of priority for the programme, but the main objectives are to advise on how to 1) improve access to children and 2) create demand at caregiver and community level.

First some notes on logistics: the panel will break into several teams travelling to Kandahar and Jalalabad. Each team has a series of questions to explore which will be done via key informant interviews and the review of documents.

My team will focus on the impact of mass communication, on the one hand, and the utilisation of interpersonal communication (IPC) strategies at the local level, on the other. These will be linked together with an evaluation of both local level planning and also the communication network which now operates in Afghanistan.

We have a few days to explore all of this and will then report back with recommendations to UNICEF, polio partners, and the Government of Afghanistan. My flight leaves today, so look for more to come once I am actually in the field.

Posting again soon....
