Engaging in community research and impact measurement relevant to Ummeed’s work
Funded by: National Institute of Health, USA
In partnership with: Yale University and University of Ankara
Objective: Develop a tool that can be used by community health workers in low and middle income countries to monitor early childhood development.
Methodology: The study was conducted in 3 phases over 5 years, and data was collected from over 20,000 children from 4 low and middle income countries.
The following factors may preclude the use of standard assessment instruments like questionnaires and checklists.
The IGMCD is a novel tool with the ultimate goal of facilitating developmental monitoring and the early detection of developmental difficulties in children between the ages of 0-42 months in Low and Middle Income (LAMI) countries. It consists of an open-ended, culturally neutral interview with a caregiver centered around the strengths of the child in his or her specific context.
