Social Media Monitoring and Evaluation

SocialMedia Monitoring and Evaluation Guide

  •  January 8, 2019
  •  By CARPHA

Public health organisations use social media tools to expand their reach, foster user engagement, and increase access to credible public health messages. According to Brandwatch, a social media monitoring company headquartered in Brighton, England, between September 2017 and October 2018, social media users grew by 320 million, making it a viable platform for the dissemination of information. Many public health campaigns are created for social media, however, to determine the impact of these campaigns, they must be monitored and evaluated. This guidebook is developed by the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) with funding from the U.S. Embassy for Barbados and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States. The goal is to help social media managers monitor and evaluate their campaigns. Although many examples within the guidebook refer to the Aedes aegypti mosquito, an important vector for the Region, the principles can be applied to other public health situations.

Engagement Communautaire et Lutte Antivectorielle dans les Caraïbes

  •  November 6, 2018
  •  By CARPHA

Cette publication a été créée pour aider les gouvernements à élaborer des politiques, des stratégies et des programmes communautaires conçus spécifiquement pour relever les défis uniques liés au vecteur et à la prévention des maladies dans la région des Caraïbes. Il inclut le dessin des meilleures pratiques mises en oeuvre par les programmes de contrôle et de prévention réussis dans le monde entier, y compris des suggestions anecdotiques et individuelles pour améliorer les systèmes et les programmes existants. De cette manière, l'auteur espère que tout lecteur pourra à la fois lancer des programmes d'engagement communautaire à partir de zéro et / ou être capable d'augmenter les programmes existants pour augmenter l'efficacité et la durabilité. Ce manuel n'est pas un ensemble d'instructions de A à Z. Au lieu de cela, il devrait être considéré comme un ensemble de plans modulaires et flexibles pour la mise en oeuvre de nouvelles initiatives fondées dans les Caraïbes pour développer les capacités d'activation des communautés dans la lutte contre les maladies à transmission vectorielle. En utilisant des stratégies et des méthodes évolutives, peu coûteuses et durables, les pays et territoires membres de la CARPHA peuvent déployer des programmes d'activation communautaires plus forts qui aboutiront idéalement à des niveaux plus faibles de transmission des maladies à transmission vectorielle.

CARPHA Betrokkenheid van de Gemeenschap en Vectorbestrijding in het Caribisch gebied

  •  November 6, 2018
  •  By CARPHA

Deze publicatie is opgesteld om overheden te helpen om gemeenschapsgericht beleid, strategieën en programma's te ontwikkelen die specifiek zijn ontworpen om te voldoen aan de unieke vectorgerelateerde en ziektepreventie-uitdagingen in het Caribisch gebied. Het omvat het putten uit best practices die geïmplementeerd zijn door succesvolle bestrijdings- en preventieprogramma's over de hele wereld, inclusief anekdotische en individuele suggesties voor het verbeteren van bestaande systemen en programma's. Op deze manier is het de hoop van de auteur dat elke lezer in staat zal zijn om community-engagement-programma's [ofwel programma’s voor het betrekken van de gemeenschap] helemaal opnieuw te starten en / of bestaande programma's te vermeerderen om de effectiviteit en duurzaamheid te vergroten. Deze handleiding is geen reeks instructies van A tot Z. In plaats daarvan moet het worden gezien als een reeks modulaire en flexibele blauwdrukken voor de implementatie van nieuwe Caribische initiatieven om mogelijkheden te ontwikkelen om gemeenschappen te activeren in de strijd tegen door vectoren overgedragen ziekten. Met behulp van schaalbare, goedkope en duurzame strategieën en methoden kunnen CARPHA-lidstaten en -gebieden sterkere programma's voor gemeenschapsactivering implementeren die idealiter zullen resulteren in een vermindering van door vectoren overgedragen ziekten.
