The 2008 Baseline Rural Bangladesh Smiling Sun Franchise Program (BSSFP) Evaluation Survey is the first installment in a series of two surveys intended to assess the efficacy of the rural component of the BSSFP program in terms of its ability to deliver an essential services package (ESP) of family planning and maternal and child health services to under-served populations across Bangladesh. The baseline survey is designed to provide a picture of circumstances at the population level in BSSFP catchment areas and similar, nearby non-project areas where the BSSFP is not operating but the government is. Useful in its own right as a source of information as critical programmatic decisions are made in the early phase of the BSSFP project, the baseline survey also provides information regarding circumstances on the eve of conversion from the operational model of the National Service Delivery Program (NSDP, which the BSSFP succeeds) to that of the BSSFP. This is critical information which, when combined with that from a follow-up wave to be conducted three years hence, will allow for tracking performance of the program over time.
