Register now for coverage assessment workshop in Oxford

Valid International together with Mark Myatt is planning two sets of 2-day coverage assessment workshops from 27th to the 28th of March 2012 and 29th to the 30th of March 2012 respectively. The workshop is an introductory course to the various methods designed and used for assessing the coverage of the outpatient therapeutic care programme (OTP) and supplementary feeding programme (SFP) components of community- based therapeutic care (CTC) or community-based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM). These methods are Semi-Quantitative Evaluation of Access and Coverage (SQUEAC), Simplified Lot Quality Assurance Sampling Evaluation of Access and Coverage (SLEAC) and Simple Spatial Survey Method (S3M).

The first workshop is aimed at mid-level managers and technicians particularly (but not limited to) those based at headquarters of international non-governmental organisations. The second workshop is intended for donors / funders and United Nations organisations. The workshop will be held at Jesus College, University of Oxford, UK. Each workshop is limited to 20-25 participants.

At the end of the workshop, the participants would be able to differentiate between the different coverage methods and determine the programme contexts for which they are best suited. This will enable more informed decisions on planning and budgeting for appropriate coverage assessment methods for their programmes in different country contexts. The workshop is not meant to train participants on how to conduct coverage assessments.

Each 2-day workshop will start with an introductory session on the methods, their history and development and strengths and weaknesses. This will be followed by sessions that detail the features of the individual methods. The sessions will be led by a team of four highly-experienced practitioners headed by Mark Myatt, the lead developer of all the methods currently used for coverage assessment. The workshop agenda is currently being finalised and will be made available to participants in February 2012.

Participation in the two-day workshop costs £600. This includes workshop fees, workshop materials and lunch and refreshments for both days. Please note that participants will be responsible for their own travel costs to and from Oxford. Participants who wish to stay in Oxford will be responsible for their own accommodation. Various options including discounted rate at Jesus College as well as travel information are available online.

Registration will start on the 2nd of January 2012. For further information and/or to signify your interest, visit the workshop webpage at http://www.validinternational.org/coverage or contact Basia Benda, email: basia@validinternational.org
