Survey Planning print story
August 18, 2011
After doing my research on the healthcare in Kenya, I set out to design a survey that would allow me to assess the health knowledge of the local communities. I started by writing down the questions that I formulated about the people living around the SOTENI dispensary.
The survey will be designed to give data that answer the following:
By finding the answers to these questions, I hoped to be able to improve the services that SOTENI offers at the dispensary. For example, by looking to see how families prevent diseases and finding they need more mosquito nets, I could then target the prevention services offered at the dispensary.
The next step is to design the actual questions I will ask Kenyans when I am working in Mbakalo.
