Title

1st IPC-Chronic Analysis in Bangladesh and support to Nepal and Philippines

Description

The first IPC-Chronic Analysis in Asia was implemented in Bangladesh in November 2014. Two other countries in Asia, i.e. Nepal and Philippines, are also in the process of rolling-out IPC-Chronic.

Before the IPC-Chronic Analysis, Bangladesh had already conducted a 2-day IPC awareness raising and ISS workshop, followed by over 4 weeks of evidence collection and re-analysis and 5-day training on IPC-Chronic.

The IPC-Chronic Analysis was conducted from 10 to 14 November 2014 on 18 districts. Some of the most critical parts of the analysis are evidence collection, data preparation and re-analysis. Given that, IPC GSU Technical Officers supporting the chronic roll-out in Bangladesh decided to invite also the data analysts from Nepal and Philippines in order to train them on the IPC protocols. As a result, the experience gained on data re-analysis and organization contributed to the streamlining of the following IPC-Chronic Analyses in Nepal and Philippines.
