Health And Nutrition - The Nepal Multiple Indicator Surveillance (First Cycle : January to March 1995)
PDF File Size: 5.23 MB | Download   
The Nepal Multiple Indicator Surveillance (NMIS) is a reiterative process designed to gather data on key problems in the country, provide this information to planners in a timely manner and help establish an operational framework for decentralization. A key feature of this approach is the national representation of the data, while permitting district level conclusions for at least 20 districts. The first phase of the NMIS was a national baseline survey of many of the indicators recomm​ended for monitoring progress towards the World Summit for Children goals. Under the aegis of the National Planning Commission (NPC), this is intended as a key component in implementation of the National Programme of Action for Children and Development for the 1990s'.A statistically valid sample was developed by the Central Bureau of Statistics. A total of 144 clusters were
randomly selected to represent the urban/rural balance in the 15 eco-development regions. Each cluster or site was made up of approximately 120 contiguous households. Data were collected between January and March 1995 from 18,772 households, including 102,008 people, 9,537 of them children under the age of three years. Some 3.6% of households could not be contacted at the time of the survey. About two thirds (63 %) of household heads were predominantly farmers. Females head 10% of households.This report deals with the first phase of the surveillance, that of health and nutrition. 'me second phase of the NMIS will be focused primarily on education, with a re-visit of the same sites and officials, and in general the same households. During this phase results from the present health and nutrition cycle will be presented. This will reinforce and extend the surveillance cycle of information, dialogue and support of relevant action at the central and local levels. Users include not only central government institutions, but also districts and their communities. The eventual purpose is to provide local government and institutions the capacity to assess, analyze and act on their own information.
