Kenya: Terms of Reference HealthStart End line Survey

Organization: Child.org
Country: Kenya
Closing date: 31 Jan 2018

http://child.org/what-we-do/heathstart-end-line-evaluation

I. Background Child.org:

We are a bunch of people dedicated to one thing and one thing only: building a world where every child has an equal opportunity. HealthStart is a programme is a School Health program run by Child.org initiated to address children’s health in school. It is aimed at reducing school absenteeism and drop out level in primary school thus improving student performance. The HealthStart program is funded by Comic Relief. Currently, HealthStart is being implemented in 25 schools in Western Kenya, Kisumu County seeking to benefit at least 10,000 school going children. This is the second phase of the program that has been ongoing for two years having accomplished its first phase which involved only 2 schools in the same region. HealthStart works through: Strengthening systems, ensuring the schools have access to health services and are taught health skills: Community involvement through setting up of health clubs whose members include both the children and parents: Provision of health services, ensuring schools have access to mosquito nets and deworming tablets and Data provision in which schools are taught how to capture and share health results. Child.org has partnered with two organizations; Ogra and Omega Foundation to implement the HealthStart program. Each partner focuses on specific areas of programme delivery that complement their strengths and experience. Omega Foundation provides mentorship, capacity building and systems strengthening to Community Based Organizations in and around Kisumu County. Omega applies this experience to HealthStart by taking the lead in the processes of systems strengthening and training in each school and community sensitization. Ogra Foundation implemented the HealthStart pilot programme and therefore have an excellent understanding of the needs, policies and challenges involved in delivery health interventions in a school setting. Ogra takes lead on the health service delivery and regular dialogue reviews with the school communities

II. The project
The HealthStart program is currently working in 25 schools in Muhoroni and Nyando Sub counties, Kisumu County which is a malaria endemic region. The schools are grouped in 5 clusters: Angoro, Ayucha, Milenya, Nyatao and Ngeny. HealthStart works with the schools, local government and communities to implement a clear and effective framework that delivers School Health and Nutrition interventions and improves educational attainment. It works to establish a robust framework within schools so that interventions delivered in have a long lasting, sustainable impact on every pupil. The project also works with different stakeholders to strengthen each stakeholder’s ability to gather data and to understand the impact and learn from it. The activities implemented by the project as relates to the program outcome areas include:

a) Systems Strengthening HealthStart works in each school to strengthen governance through the School Board of Management ; introduce the Kenya National School Health Policy of 2009, form a School Health Committee and a health clubs; embedding national policy. It also provides schools with the internal structures and partnerships with the relevant line ministries to ensure GoK provides health services and to hold local ministries to account for any failure to deliver.

b) Health Education Development The HealthStart program works with local and county level representatives from relevant ministries, as well as teachers, to understand the program framework and to disseminate engaging content including the key health messages of the Kenya National School Health Policy of 2009.

c) Community Mobilization Health clubs provide children with a structure through which to advocate for their rights holding the School Board of Management to account when their needs are not met. Parents are better informed on the health and wellbeing of their child(ren) through the introduction of the school health report card that gives a summary of a child’s nutrition status.

d) Health Services Each school went through a needs assessment process to establish existing resources/services and potential. Interventions were tailored as a result. The package in different schools included: deworming; nutrition specific interventions; LLITNs; improved sanitation; and health education. Data collected was in putted into the Kenya Demographic Health Information System to support in informing government decisions.

Partners Roles

Omega’s role in implementing the program was to ensure that all the stakeholders are identified, mobilized and capacity built to understand their roles in schools as stipulated in the Kenya National School Health policy. Omega would also ensure regular mentorship for stakeholders to ensure the policy is well understood and implemented. Ogra, on the other hand would work closely with MoH, to ensure mosquito nets, deworming tablets & vitamin A supplements are available and properly administered. Ogra was also charged with the management of regular dialogue meetings in all 20 schools, bringing Government partners, school health clubs and school management together to ensure the National School Health Policy is understood and implemented by all stakeholders.

Expected Program Outcomes:

By providing improvements to capacity building on the SHN policy alongside improvements to accessible literature on healthy and risky behaviours for School Health Committees, representatives from all stakeholders (children, teaching staff, BoM and caregivers) will have improved access to understanding and knowledge on how to stay healthy. Building capacity and strengthening systems for school governance will improve the sustainability and longevity of any other interventions and relationships developed to improve health for children and communities.

Improving inclusive channels of communication between different stakeholders, awareness of their rights and understanding of how to advocate for change will empower children, communities and schools to become agents for change. Improved access to technology for data collection, storage and sharing enables schools to understand the importance of data, to learn about key trends and needs within their community and to shape and evolve activities as a result.

The focus will be to identify the players (collectors, recyclers, composters, buyers, transporters) and barriers that currently affect their optimal performance towards sustainable solid waste management for the city vis-à-vis the existing policies, regulations and incentives for PPP arrangements.

Methodology

The study will be participatory and will utilize a mixed method approach. This will include collection of primary data from the different waste actors and stakeholders in the waste value chain and review of secondary data such as policies, reports etc. Data collection and analysis will be both quantitative and qualitative.

Using the different approaches, the scoping study will identify the different waste actors/stakeholders, establish the status/effectiveness of their operation, their relationship with other actors within the solid waste value chain and recommendations on what would be needed to achieve efficient and sustainable operations.
