A Review of the Use of ChildInfo in Nepal
PDF File Size: 162 KB | Download   
ChildInfo started in 1992 with the development of the Data Entry Enhancement and Display System(DEEDS) software in UNICEF India. ChildInfo is a database for monitoring the situation of children and women in the South Asia region, and can be used to organize, analyse and present statistical data based on various indicators. It was designed with the aim of encouraging children, adults, civil society, government organizations, aid agencies and UNICEF to become involved in democratic dialogue that would contribute towards improving the situation for children and women.

This report details the use of ChildInfo by participants of two training courses undertaken in 1999 and 2001. Of the original 56 participants, contact was made with 29, who agreed to be interviewed. In addition, reports prepared by UNICEF’s Division of Policy and Planning, UNICEF Nepal, the Central Bureau of Statistics, and the ChildInfo Technical Committee were reviewed.

This study concludes that ChildInfo does have the potential to become more popular if (a) up-to-date VDC-level data are made available, (b) senior managers are made more aware of its capabilities and potential, (c) training targets those who use statistical data in their daily work, (d) software enhancement includes the capacity to link or integrate ChildInfo with other software packages, and (e) ChildInfo is launched formally by the National Planning Commission and aggressive promotion is undertaken.
