The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Kulawa project (meaning “to care for” in Hausa) is a five-year (2020-2025) initiative to support the Government of Niger in improving health, family planning (FP), and nutrition outcomes in Maradi, Zinder, and Tillabéri regions. As is standard practice in the implementation of development programs, baseline studies are conducted to establish a baseline against which to monitor and evaluate the progress and effectiveness of an activity during its implementation and after its completion. This report summarizes the process that USAID Kulawa followed in establishing baseline values for all of its performance indicators. Given the complexity of the USAID Kulawa project’s performance indicators, it was expected that several sources would be used to establish baseline values for these indicators. This report presents the results (baseline values) from the various sources that were consulted (literature sources and studies commissioned by the USAID Kulawa project) to establish the baselines, as well as providing quantitative and qualitative analyses and interpretations made in establishing the baseline values for the project’s performance indicators.
