Mobile Data Collection remote support hotline for Terre des Hommes
Jun / 2016

A remote support hotline for all Tdh delegations has been operational since 2016 so that any staff can ask for remote support from CartONG on mobile data collection (encoding issues, choice of tools, validation of a form before deployment, etc.). The hotline is a very well liked tool and has proved to be extremely useful to Tdh delegations. In 2018, for instance, CartONG received 63 hotline activations.

Mobile Data Collection implementation for Nutrition field & related capacity building (Tdh Burkina)
Oct / 2013 to Feb / 2016

CartONG has been supporting nutrition surveys for Terre des Hommes-Suisse since 2013: CartONG helped TdH to switch to mobile data collection- during the first deployments our team coded the questionnaires, set up all the smartphones and trained the NGO’s local staff to use the tools. The last mission there was to train the Monitoring & Evaluation staff to conceive and encode forms as well as to analyse the data independently, with no in-country support.

Documentation for Tdh staff capacity building on Information Management
Jan / 2016

CartONG has been helping Tdh with compiling documentation on Mobile Data Collection and Information Management more generally to help field teams use it in the most effective manner. Since January 2018, the documentation has progressively been made public on the MDC Toolkit website to help other organizations that might find it useful. A special highlight is the Data Visualization Toolkit available on: https://www.mdc-toolkit.org/analyse-your-data/

Some CartONG volunteers have helped in the write-up of a few documents and in the translation of most of the documentation to French.

CartONG has deployed numerous times to Terre des hommes delegations to give trainings and help with the general capacity building of national and international staff in the field on information management, mobile data collection and geographical information systems.

A total of 8 regional CartONG trainings have been organized between 2015 and 2017, with a total of 74 participants and 23 countries trained on MDC throughout Tdh’s main intervention zones, with a number also trained on Information Management more widely.

In 2018, 22 people from field operations were trained from 10 different countries through one regional MDC training (Eastern Europe), one regional Information Management workshop (MENA), and a two-week training to the Iraq Monitoring & Evaluation teams.

WASH KAP (Knowledge Aptitudes, Practices) survey implementation and mapper (UNHCR PHS)
Jun / 2015

CartONG has been supporting the Public Health section of UNHCR since 2015 for the large-scale deployment of an annually-run Knowledge, Attitudes, Practices survey in 180 refugee camps - helping to define the strategy, with the development of substantial training kits, the encoding of the survey and related analysis tools. Our support also involves field training missions as well as implementation missions.

In 2018, 4 in-country trainings of survey managers or implementation missions occurred (Burkina Faso, Uganda, Sudan and Bangladesh), as well as interventions both at the WASH HCR global week and partner day.

CartONG also works on documentation. In 2017, documentation was published on the subject of the WASH KAP survey for the first time on the UNHCR WASH website. In 2018, the tools and documentation were also improved, with the possibility of comparing the WASH core indicators for a given place over time and the production of four key manuals in French and English corresponding to the key phases of a KAP implementation.

Additionally, CartONG developed in 2016 the WASH KAP Mapper which maps out WASH KAP survey results. In 2017, CartONG continued working and improving the mapper: the mapper was made available online, and and extra features were developed to improve the user experience.

Mobile Data Collection support (UNHCR PHS)
Jan / 2015

CartONG supports the Public Health Section (PHS) of UNHCR on a number of MDC projects. Some of our main support is focused on the deployment of the SENS nutrition and WASK KAP surveys for UNHCR PHS, as well as our support on the iRHIS platform (integrated Refugee Health Information System).

Additionally, we also provide support on the implementation of other data collection tools, such as the Medical Referral Database, the Health Access and Utilization Survey, a HIV surveillance module, the FACT or the Balanced Score Card for Health Facilities (check out the dashboard here). To learn more about these tools and the work conducted by CartONG, see our Annual Reports.

CartONG also provides support by issuing benchmarkings (benchmarking of 17 MDC solutions applied to the humanitarian sector, etc.) and other assessments. You can find our more about such resources on the CartoBlog.
