Case Study Series: Community-Based Information Systems

MEASURE Evaluation conducted case studies to understand and document how community-based information systems are designed, implemented, and used by program staff and government counterparts.

MEASURE Evaluation, with support from the United States Agency for International Development, conducted case studies to understand and document how community-based information systems are designed, implemented, and used by program staff and government counterparts. Case studies in Kenya, Tanzania, and Zambia provide an opportunity to identify key lessons learned – including successes, challenges, and opportunities for improvement – that will inform community-based programs globally.

The case studies focus on OVC programs because such programs rely heavily on community workers and community-based organizations (CBOs) to implement activities and monitor program progress. However, case study findings are relevant to other community-based programs that support prevention efforts and ensure continuity of care through nutrition, home based care (HBC), and general community health programs that are at the forefront of AIDS-free generation efforts.

The case study series includes the case study overview and three separate case studies for each country. Each element of the series can be downloaded as a stand-alone document.
