    African Risk Capacity: Client Feedback Survey

    Kimetrica was contracted by UK's Department of International Development (DFID) to undertake a client feedback survey about the capacity building services provided by the African Risk Capacity (ARC) Agency to its member countries. The survey tools were designed and administered by the Kimetrica team through telephone interviews to Government representatives of 11 member countries. The survey's goal was to determine ARC Member States' satisfaction with the ARC Agency services. The findings of these surveys contributed to the improvement of ARC capacity building in the future.

    Supply Chain Management System: Long Lasting Insecticide Treated Nets

    Malaria affects approximately half of the world’s population, but the highest number of deaths is among children under five in Sub-Saharan Africa. Under a United States Agency for International Development (USAID) project, Populations Services International, Inc. (PSI) distributed long-lasting insecticide-treated mosquito nets (LLINs), for free or at highly subsidised prices, through mass campaigns, routine health facility-based distributions, community health workers, and the private sector. Kimetrica was contracted to provide a customised version of its commercial supply chain management software, ki-suppliesTM, to manage the distribution of LLINs. The software was accessible to all stakeholders and capable of accurately tracking and verifying LLIN delivery. The software database integrated the pre-existing paper-based tracking systems by creating an electronic record of each LLIN. Each stakeholder, including USAID, the Malawi Ministry of Health, and other partners, could access the system and view the location of each LLIN, from initial arrival at the port to final delivery at a clinic.

    International Household Survey Network Data Clinics

    The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) provides support to national governments in survey design, data management and data analysis. Kimetrica was contracted to provide technical assistance to government statistics offices through capacity development to conduct national surveys, manage data, and data analysis and dissemination. Kimetrica's technical trainers provided regional and national level training to over 20 countries in Africa and Asia on comprehensive micro-data evaluation, data processing systems, survey methods, analysis, indicator selection and public dissemination policy. The project increased the ability of national statistics bureaus to manage national surveys, process data and use data for policy and economic development decision-making.

    Increasing Smallholder Production through Structured Demand in TB, HIV/AIDS Treatment and OVC Programmes: Feasibility and Impact Analysis

    With the significant expansion of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis (TB), and support for Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) programs in Africa, there was both an urgent need to meet the demand for expanding programs and, at the same time, to address the increased food security and nutritional needs of beneficiaries. Under a contract with UNAIDS, Kimetrica conducted a study on smallholder incomes and market opportunities and how they would be impacted, if farmers were to supply food for people undergoing antiretroviral therapy (ART), TB patients in treatment, and for OVC programs. Kimetrical also had to study the feasability of such an initiative. To that effect, Kimetrica conducted case studies in six African countries to gain insight and practical knowledge of the potential benefits, costs, risks and constraints of investing in smallholder supply chains for donor-funded health and social protection programs. In addition, Kimetrica's staff mapped potential partners in 20 African countries, ranging from NGOs to farming groups to health facilities, that could manage procurement of food from small farmers to clients of social protection programs. The study’s findings were used to develop programs to support smallholder production and to provide nutritional support to HIV/AIDS, TB and OVC beneficiaries.

    Microdata Management Toolkit Training

    The Microdata Management Toolkit developed by the World Bank Data Group for the International Household Survey Network aimed to promote the adoption of international standards and best practices for microdata documentation, dissemination and preservation. To this effect, Kimetrica conducted hands-on microdata management training for the National Bureaus of Statistics in 15 African countries. In Sri Lanka, Kimetrica trained national staff in improved methods for data capture, documentation, data storage and dissemination of microdata and metadata related to national surveys, such as household and expenditure surveys, population census and health surveys. The training included an introduction to the Organisation for Economic Co-ordination and Development's (OECD) Microdata Management Toolkit, an easy-to-use system for survey data management.
