Health Intervention and Evaluation

Interventions are typically delivered within three months after the needs assessment. The intervention approach aims to enhance the community’s disaster resilience by delivering  health education campaigns that cover the use of disaster preparedness kit, evacuation routes, and health-promoting behaviors relevant to post-disaster situations (i.e. proper crop management after flood).

In addition to enhancing knowledge related to disaster preparedness in the community, the project team also introduces other health-related themes to encourage villagers to make informed decisions about their health. Other health topics in the health education campaigns include:

  • personal and environmental hygiene;
  • waste management;
  • animal handling/poultry management;
  • occupational safety
  • indoor air quality; and
  • health behaviors/risks related to non-communicable diseases (NCD).

In order to examine the effectiveness of the health education campaigns, evaluations for individual participants are conducted before the intervention (baseline assessment), immediately after (outcome evaluation), and one year after the intervention (impact evaluation).
