Case Study Series: Community-Based Information Systems Abstract:

MEASURE Evaluation, with support from the United States Agency for International Development, conducted case studies in 2014 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 also be downloaded as a stand-alone document:
