Uganda: Using a Simple Survey Method to Scale Up Evidence-Based Decision Making at the District Level - the UPHOLD Project

Download this publicationThis case study, developed as part of JSI's Best Practices in Scaling Up series, examines how JSI's Uganda Program for Human and Holistic Development (UPHOLD) expanded use of the Lot Quality Assurance Sampling (LQAS) methodology for data collection and analysis. Because of the program, districts now have accurate data available for their planning, budgets more accurately reflect districts' specific needs, and district performance can be measured and health services thus improved. The case study also looks at the steps used to scale-up LQAS in Uganda and explores what worked and what was learned as the methodology was implemented broadly.
