Epicentre will be leading an independent and enhanced technical review of coverage methodologies
to inform possible improvement and suggest future development activities for the most commonly used coverage methodologies in the nutrition sector; SQUEAC, SLEAC and S3M. Users of the methods are invited to pose methodological questions, comments and suggestions to Epicentre, over a period of 30 days, opening on the 04/07/2014, closing on the 04/08/2014.
Please submit comments and questions via email to Coverage.Review@epicentre.msf.org
during this time period. It is essential that inputs are submitted during this time otherwise they will not be considered.
All comments would then be answered by Epicentre after a period of 60 days.
If an overwhelming amount of questions and comments are submitted, Epicentre will group questions thematically and respond to these accordingly. A report responding to all these questions will be disseminated after the 60 day period. Any lessons learned or suggestions will be documented and actioned by the Coverage Monitoring Network.
It is important to note that the independent review is responsible for responding to methodological questions
, and not questions about how to practically implement or interpret findings in specific cases. There are existing forums to respond to these queries, namely En-Net. This review is only concerned with questions relating to the methodology itself.
Finally, all 3 methods have undergone substantial peer review. The present process has been initiated in order to improve any areas of the methodology based on constructive suggestions and comments from users.
