Robust monitoring and reporting of data are critical for effective planning and implementation of the COVID-19 response. We supported district authorities in creating comprehensive and easy to use monitoring formats for different COVID-19 response activities. Below are two examples:
We incorporated a migrant tracking format as part of the new ASHA diary (designed through TAF support, and scaled across Madhya Pradesh). In some areas where we work, we supported district administrations in enhancing their migration tracking formats.
We supported district administrations in Madhya Pradesh by creating monitoring formats for frontline workers for the 15-day “Kill Corona” campaign launched across the state in July 2020. The campaign involved active fever screening across the district, and appropriate management of symptomatic cases.
