Participatory design and monitoring of reproductive health projects

HAWKINS, Kirstan
March 1996

Expand view

This document aims to find an effective way of designing and implementing programmes that address sexual and reproductive health needs by placing beneficiary perspectives in a central position. The document is split into two main sections. Section A provides a brief guide to designing a participatory monitoring system. Participatory monitoring as used in this document refers mainly to the inclusion of ‘primary stakeholders’ in monitoring of project activities. Moreover, there is a discussion of how impact can be measured from the users' perspectives through the use of proxy indicators. A checklist of key questions to be asked is provided as a guide to enhancing participation at the different stages of the project cycle which is followed by a brief comparison of external review monitoring versus monitoring. To illustrate the process of including client monitoring within the logical framework of a project, a case study example of the design of participatory monitoring is provided. The illustration ends with a discussion of the data collection systems that were used. Section B under the heading 'Resource materials' is divided into four sections which greatly overlap with the issues raised in Section A. The four sections cover the following areas in detail I) a detailed checklist for incorporating users' perspective in the project cycle, ii) different methods for monitoring from the users' perspective, iii) an overview of conventional family planning indicators and iv) a brief review of the literature on sexual and reproductive health. The paper briefly concludes with repeated calls for the user perspective to form the cornerstone of project design and monitoring
