We are currently looking for NGOs, UN agencies and governments to test the Wash’Em Rapid Assessment Tools. In the future we will also be looking for organisations to test the decision-making software and conduct small scale pilots of behavioural change interventions. The information below summarises how you can get involved, the kind of feedback we are interested in and the amount of time and resources required from your organisation.
Wash’Em has developed a set of rapid and easy-to-use assessment tools. These are adapted to the emergency contexts and are directly linked to program design. So far the written guides have been pilot-tested in crises in Iraq, DRC, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe. There are 5 separate rapid assessment tools which are conducted either at a household level or within focus group discussions.

Understand how people’s personal experiences of crisis, displacement and disease may affect your intervention
Understand whether people perceive diarrhoea (or other outbreak diseases) to be a risk
We are interested in working with partners who can try out the 5 tools in the settings where they are working and provide feedback.
The field guides are ready for testing now and we welcome testing partners until July 2019.
We would like feedback on the usability, feasibility and challenges of using the tools (including training your team, undertaking the field work and analysing the results).
We would recommend doing this with a team of 5 people. Doing it with more will reduce the data collection time and doing it with fewer may extend the data collection time.
2 days – test only one tool and feedback to Wash’Em.
We have put together a rough schedule of a week-long test of the tools with 5 people involved. See the schedule here.
In the coming 6-9 months the WASH’EM Team will be also working on the following projects and will be seeking input. Please get in touch if you wish to be involved.
