Support on Information Management and Mobile Data Collection strategy (Tdh)
Sep / 2014

CartONG has been helping Terre des hommes with their Information Management and data collection strategy since 2014, by evaluating tools, compiling studies and benchmarkings, counseling them on how to help the organisation augment its skills and developing training kits and communication documents for its staff, as well as helping with the technical recruitment of IM/MDC staff.

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.

SENS - Standardised Expanded Nutrition Survey implementation and mapper (UNHCR PHS)
Jan / 2012

CartONG has been supporting the Public Health section of UNHCR since 2012 in the implementation of the SENS nutrition surveys (Standardised Expanded Nutrition Survey). The SENS nutrition surveys of UNHCR are deployed in 100 refugees sites each year, 95% of which are conducted on mobile phones. CartONG continuously works on improving the content of the modules of SENS. In 2017, we reviewed the content of the 6 existing modules, and in creating a new one on demographics, which will be deployed in 2018.

Our support also involves field training workshops as well as implementation missions.

Additionally, CartONG developed in 2015 the SENS Mapper which maps out SENS survey results. Since then, CartONG has continued working and improving the mapper by adding indicators in 2016, and by making the mapper available online in 2017 as well as adding extra features to improve the user experience.
