Objectives of the end-line survey
The aim of the study is to conduct a project level endline survey to assess the outcomes and impact of project in Bajura district. The overall objective of the endline survey is to generate the data/information from the project’s targeted groups as they deal with improving behavior, attitude, and practices for menstrual hygiene management (MHM), with a view to compare the result status with Project’s targets and baseline. The endline survey will focus on understanding the changes in the endline and will be primarily a KAP (Knowledge Attitude and Practice) survey that generates the quantitative and qualitative data of a particular situation or target population to assess the knowledge, attitude, and practice regarding menstrual hygiene management.
Following are the specific objectives of the endline survey:
- To assess the level of improvement in MHM-related knowledge, attitude, and practice among target groups.
- To compare, measure and analyze the results with project’s result framework and baseline survey.
- To know the prevailing opportunities, challenges, catalysts, and sectoral overviews of MHM with a view to improving the MHM behavior, attitude, and practice in the same working location, including in similar areas in the future.
- To serve as a reference knowledge document (the endline report) for internal and external purposes.
