Kigoma and Ngara, Tanzania
This is the sixth in a planned series of HOW TO GUIDES that document how Reproductive Health (RH) activities were implemented in the field. The Guide was prepared by Beth Vann, a UNHCR Consultant who provided technical assistance, from January to April 2000, to the development of a monitoring and evaluation system for Sexual and Gender Violence Programme in the refugee camps in Kigoma and Ngara, Tanzania. The field-based work was action-oriented and participatory involving all actors working in Sexual and Gender Violence prevention and response in Tanzania. This document describes the steps taken in developing the system and gives examples of the protocols and monitoring tools drafted for field-testing. Partners working in the field were trained in the use of the tools during the consultancy.
Each HOW TO GUIDE documents one field experience and illustrates an innovative approach to a particular area of RH. The Guide is not meant to present a definitive solution to a problem. Rather, its recommendations should be used and adapted to suit particular needs and conditions of each refugee setting.
