Abstract

Real-word operational and methodological constraints in addition to demand for meaningful local stakeholder participation in the monitoring and evaluation process pose challenges in seeking timely, rigorous, inclusive, and nimble monitoring systems. The Reduction in Anemia through Normative Innovations (RANI) process evaluation aims to leverage ICTs and rapid evaluation methodologies to continuously monitor and improve the implementation delivery of several social behavior change communication strategies to increase IFA use and reduce the anemia burden among women of reproductive age in Angul, Odisha. We will use a rapid evaluation multi-level mixed-methods approach grounded in realist, constructivist, and participatory evaluation philosophies to monitor fidelity and receptivity to implementation among study participants and community facilitators. Feedback loops identified via live dashboards and monthly rapid response cycles will aid iterative and collaborative consensus building and decision-making to facilitate timely course corrections by providing a shared-understanding of ground realities for a geographically dispersed culturally diverse multi-disciplinary stakeholders and team.
