Blanket feeding and nutrition surveillance (UNHCR PHS)
Nov / 2013

Many programs have implemented blanket supplementary feeding activities  which often consist of several distributions per day. This is demanding in resources and difficult to ensure that every child  has equal access to the program. UNHCR and Partners are interested in piloting monitoring programs in a refugee camps to analyze how well the intended food distributions are reaching the target groups. In most operations the food distribution has been monitored on paper based lists which is time consuming and difficult to use for analysis. To overcome this difficulty and with CartONG technical support, monitoring systems based on Mobile technology will be piloted in one refugee camp to evaluate how well does programs do.

Whilst initially ODK was planned to be used as solution, doing case management through reading in data files which have to be replaced every week for updated data is not user friendly enough. XScanPet was chosen for the first pilots.
