Community-based Nutrition Program Effectiveness Evaluation in Afghanistan

2019-10-24 12:49:22 | BioPortfolio


The study will be a mixed methods, two-arm, cluster-randomized controlled trial. The primary aim of this evaluation is to measure the effectiveness of the Community-Based Nutrition Package intervention on child feeding practices among parents/caregivers to children 6 to 23 months of age in Afghanistan.


The study will be a mixed methods, two-arm cluster-randomized controlled trial (CRT). Health facilities eligible to implement the CBNP in their catchment areas will serve as the unit of implementation and be randomly allocated to treatment or control groups. For each health facility, up to four health posts, among the 6-10 health posts typically attached to a health facility, will be randomly selected. Households in communities served by selected health posts will be mapped and a list of households with eligible participants will generated from which a random sample will be selected. Structured questionnaires will be administered to separate samples of women with children 6-23 months of age at baseline then approximately 18 months later. Semi-structured, in-depth interviews will also be conducted with a sub-set of selected women and samples of their husbands and mothers-in-law at baseline and endline.
