Research and Evaluation PROJECTS
As a response to preventable threats posed by poor sanitation and hygiene, the World Bank’s Water and Sanitation Programme (WSP) implemented a Scaling Up Handwashing Behaviour Change and Sanitation Programme in six countries. The major component of the project was to reduce the incidence of disease. Kimetrica implemented the programme’s impact evaluation in four countries: India, Peru, Senegal and Vietnam. The evaluation, which was based on formal quantitative surveys, documented the health impacts and relevant project costs of WSP interventions. To measure impacts, the evaluation implemented randomised controlled trials using household surveys to capture key outcome indicators. Kimetrica's survey and software experts provided data capture software and training in household survey enumeration, data capture, and quality control to local survey firms in the four project countries. The development of data capture software, including web-based reports, provided both quality control and survey coordination. The final impact evaluation data was used by the World Bank to measure the impact of its investment and inform follow-on programmes.
