Title: A Baseline Survey For
Decentralized Action for Child and Women (DACAW) in Saptari District
Abstract: This baseline survey was conducted under the aegis
of the Ministry of Local Development (MLD), District Development Committee (DDC/LGP)
and UNICEF. The study was to obtain baseline information especially on health,
nutrition and education of Saptari district and contributed towards building
district level capacity in relation to data collection. Appropriate district
level persons who were eventually going to be responsible for the use of the
baseline data and data management at the district level were involved in the
various stages of the survey. Such involvement not only contributes in
building the district-level capacity for data collection and analysis, but
also fosters greater ownership of the survey results.
