The study aims to determine the relative effectiveness of food hygiene and WASH interventions in preventing diarrhoeal disease in under-fives in Chikwawa District, Southern Malawi. Outcome mapping was used for the research into use/research uptake component of the project.

Why was OM chosen?

Outcome mapping was chosen to plan, measure and deliver research into use activities to ensure maximum engagement with key stakeholders - and increase the likelihood that research findings would be taken up.

What was the experience of using OM?

The implementing organisation were able to build relationships with new stakeholders and gain support for their work. For example, they built a new relationship with an NGO called PumpAid which has led to direct collaboration and uptake of their research. PumpAid are using their toolkits to implement hygiene and sanitation training for women’s groups.
