Impact evaluation in rural Tanzania


In the next 3 years, an impact evaluation will be conducted in rural Tanzania. This impact evaluation is a collaboration between the Tanzania Red Cross Society (TRCS) and Belgian Red Cross, and will look at the effect of different software interventions for improving hand washing behavior.

After receiving ethical approval both in Belgium (SMEC) and Tanzania (NIMR and COSTECH), we officially kicked off last week, when we prepared 29 enumerators for the baseline measurement (Kigoma region, Tanzania). The enumerators were trained to collect data using the Kobo Collect tool. In the upcoming weeks, a total of 1500 households in Kigoma region will be visited by the enumerators, who will ask questions about their health, and hand washing and latrine use behavior. This measurement will be repeated each year to record the improvements that have been made as a result of our interventions. These interventions include hardware, i.e. building latrines, and software, i.e. triggering behavior change by educating people, and will start soon after the baseline data collection has finished.
