Sightsavers support a number of mass drug administration (MDA) coverage evaluation surveys (CES) to validate reported coverage and understand where, amongst who and why there may be low coverage.

Sightsavers already have standardised STATA do-files, although they will need to be adapted for each country. There is also a standard analysis plan that will need to be followed, although with possibility to do further analysis as suggested by the data.
