Link NCA


The Link NCA methodology is a mixed-method study that required the collection and triangulation of both qualitative and quantitative data. The quantitative component relied on the SMART methodology for its anthropometric survey coupled with a household risk factor survey. While these two surveys are integral parts of the Link NCA method since its development in 2012, the data analyses needed strengthening substantially by moving away from a prevalence-based categorization of risk factors to testing of statistical associations between the nutritional status of children and tested risk factors. 
There was currently limited expertise available worldwide to conduct the Link NCA analyses according to the change of the approach to analysis. As a result, Link NCA requested the expertise from Tech RRT to strengthen the capacity of Link NCA Analysts to perform such analysis in the future. 

Key Achievement: 

  • Oriented LINK NCA on causes of malnutrition in five different contexts by contributing to the quality of five Link NCA surveys

  • Build the technical capacity of Link NCA staff  in data analysis

  • Report detailing training, coaching and technical support provided.
