An Evaluation of the Common Application System
UCSF and UCB researchers will work in Madhya Pradesh and Bihar, India to conduct an impact, process and economic evaluation of the Common Application System (CAS) m-health intervention. CAS is a mobile phone job aid/tool for Anganwadi Workers (AWWs), to enable the automation across a variety of area areas related to service delivery; for example, the timeliness and quality of services, real-time information, and alerts. The UCSF-UCB evaluation team will generate evidence and provide feedback for the implementation and scale-up of the program. The study will include stakeholder interviews, household and worker surveys as well as qualitative interviews to assess the impact of the intervention on a range of outcomes. The team will also conduct a process and economic evaluation of the roll-out of the system.
