The CHW endline evaluation was conducted in November 2018 and completed in 2019. The surveys were conducted within the seven pilot districts, namely Amansie Central, Amansie West, Asokore Mampong, Bosome Freho, Ejura Sekyidumasi, Sekyere Central and Sekyere Kumawu. Data were collected using household-based paperless quantitative survey methodology with questionnaires programmed on Android tablets used by the survey enumerators. Overall, the endline evaluation assessment revealed that the project had taken important strides in the positive direction in terms of developmental gains delivered to the project’s beneficiaries.
