Sightsavers support a number of mass drug administration (MDA) coverage evaluation surveys (CES) to validate reported coverage and understand where, amongst who and why there may be low coverage. There are a number of upcoming schistosomiasis/soil-transmitted helminths CES in 2023, that require support for the statistical analysis (using STATA), these are in Chad (13 Evaluation Units (EUs) in phase 1 and 18 EUs in phase 2), Nigeria (approx. 14 EUs) and DRC (10 EUs).
Sightsavers already have standardised STATA do-files, although they will need to be adapted for each country. There is also a standard analysis plan that will need to be followed, although with possibility to do further analysis as suggested by the data.
- Completed do-files for each of the three countries
- Cleaned datasets for each of the three countries
