ASSP works in some of the most remote areas of DRC where there is little access to modern methods of communication and few resources available. These rural settings pose many complications for project management and data collection. Using Open Data Kit (ODK) software on Android phones has provided a reliable method for communicating with remote teams and collecting high-quality data.
ASSP began using ODK to track and map mass bed net distributions while also collecting demographic information in Kasai. Since then ODK has improved programming and data collection in several areas including nutrition, WASH, behavior change communication, finance and human resources.
ASSP has tracked the distribution of over 1.3 million nets in 456,000 households using ODK through its Hang Up mass distribution campaigns in Kasai and Nord Ubangi Provinces.
