South Sudanese refugees, with Uganda still the largest receiving country,
followed by Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, the Democratic Republic of Congo and the
Central African Republic

The above baseline
data should be sub aggregated into host community data and refugees’ data,
disaggregated by sex, age and disability and should allow for comparison with
the end line report data.
The purpose of this
baseline study will be to provide an information base against which to monitor
and assess an intervention’s progress and effectiveness during implementation
and after it is completed. The data collected will form a basis against which
the degree and quality of change during an intervention’s implementation will
be measured. Therefore some data might be available from the secondary sources
but will be included in the baseline to form the baseline against which the end
line will be measured/ compared.
