Post-Distribution Monitoring of Non-Food Items - Soap, Q2 2021
Income/Expenditure/Household Survey [hh/ies]
UNHCR uses Post Distribution Monitoring (PDM) as a mechanism to collect refugees' feedback on the quality, sufficiency, utilization and effectiveness of the assistance items they receive. The underlying principle behind the process is linked to accountability, as well as a commitment to improve the quality and relevance of support provided, and related services. Usually the surveys that form the basis of the assessment are conducted soon after the distribution of relief items is completed.
For this assessment of non-food items, 2292 individuals recepients of soap kits were interviewed, and were asked questions about quality, sufficiency of quantity and usefulness of such kits. The survey also includes questions on other preferred items and use of negative coping mechanisms for livelihoods.
