Node 1. Here we will ask mother with regard to her contact with SBCC activities. Specifically, we will ask about:

  • Whether she has heard about message about the programme;
  • Whether she has participated in any community sessions; and,
  • Whether she is a member of a mother’s group.

Node 2. If mother has not participated in any of the abovementioned SBCC activities, the mother is counted as not covered by the SBCC activities.

Node 3, Node 4, Node 5, Node 6. If mother has heard of or have participated in any of the SBCC activities, the mother is counted as covered by the specific SBCC activities.

Node 7. If mother is covered by any of the SBCC activities, the SBCC questionnaire should be administered. The SBCC questionnaire focuses on:

  • How and from where the mother has heard about the different SBCC activities; and,
  • What topics the mother has encountered / heard discussed in the different SBCC activities.

Node 8. If mother is covered by any of the SBCC activities, the cost-effectiveness questionnaire should be administered. The cost-effectiveness questionnaire elicits from the respondents the cost they incur to be able to participate in the programme. The cost is estimated by asking the respondent how much time (in hours) they spend for every follow-up visit to and from the programme and by asking the respondent how much they can earn for an hour’s worth of labour. By multiplying the number of hours spent accessing the programme with the potential earnings they can gain from an hour’s worth of labour, we can arrive at a shadow cost which a mother or carer gives up every time they bring their child to the programme.
