ParentText Optimisation and Evaluation in South Africa Updates December 2022 - February 2023

Reporting by Paula Zinser

The ParentText team is very busy at the moment! The majority of the team is working on analysing the data from the formative evaluation, with recordings being transcribed and transcriptions coded and analysed. We hope to have the results finalised in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, preparations for the RCT in Mpumalanga are on the way. We are very excited that the timeline and plans for the RCT will be finalised in February, where we will be meeting for the first time in person as a team, as well as to engage with our implementation partners. The team is also working on finalising the second version of ParentText 2.0, which will be utilised for the RCT.
