2010 Endline Survey for the UNFPA 6th Country Programme

The 6th Country Programme (CP) of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), together with the National Economic and Development Authority, identified ten pilot provinces (Ifugao, Mt. Province, Masbate, Bohol, Eastern Samar, Sultan Kudarat, Sulu, Tawi‐Tawi, Lanao del Sur and Maguindanao) and one city (Olongapo City) for the implementation of the Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP), which is regularly monitored through the CPAP Tracking Tool. The CPAP Tracking Tool contains outcome and output indicators that will be used to assess the success of the program mid‐term (2007) and at the end of the program period (2009). These indicators are classified into three thematic areas, namely: Reproductive Health (RH), Population and Development Strategy (PDS) and Gender and Equity.

In May 2006, data for selected baseline indicators were gathered from the 30 municipalities of the 6th CP pilot provinces. Technical assistance was provided by consultants from DRDF, UPPI and UP Baguio.

The 2010 Endline Survey aims to gather outcome and output indicators to compare with the findings from the baseline survey conducted in 2006. The endline survey will provide evidence of changes as a way to monitor improvement on the programs of UNFPA in the 6th CP sites.

The endline survey will follow the basic design of the baseline survey with some modification that will still allow for the comparison of the two samples, but will have the added feature of allowing for the computation of provincial level estimates in 4 of the 10 UNFPA provinces at the endline. These four provinces represent the areas where UNFPA embarked on joint development projects, namely: Ifugao, Masbate, Eastern Samar and Maguindanao. The endline survey will be conducted in the same municipalities and barangays covered in the baseline survey, with the addition of Olongapo City.

Moreover, the survey aims to produce accurate and up-to-date data on indicators such as adolescent fertility rate, prevalence of gender-based violence, percent of pregnant women with complete prenatal visits, contraceptive prevalence rate, and knowledge on HIV/AIDS/STI, to name a few.
