This collaboration adapts and uses Nutrition International’s existing Nutrition Intervention Monitoring System (NIMS) toolkits, survey data, and global surveys to:
- Test gender equality and empowerment indicators
- Create a gender indicator specific to nutrition programs
- Test measures of data quality from routine and intermittent monitoring sources
- Optimize tools for routine monitoring to ensure the quality of Nutrition International programs
Nutrition Intervention Monitoring System (NIMS) toolkit
The NIMS toolkit harmonizes Nutrition International’s data collection system for reporting program value-add through standardized survey tools and quality metrics to derive quality data for impact modeling using Nutrition International’s OMNI tool.
However, NIMS did not yet include gender- and equality-sensitive indicators and harmonized and quality assured methods for collecting routine monitoring data for rapid course correction.
This grant from Canadian Partnership for Women and Children’s Health responds to this gap.
