The general objective of the study was to provide useful information regarding the effectiveness of various components of the HCHT program. GRC field teams spent two weeks (a full training cycle) at each of the two centers, observing the training processes. Pre-training and post-training questionnaires were administered to trainees at each center. Concurrently, other field team members traveled to the local communities of teams trained six to nine months before (CT, or Comparison Trained teams) and to the communities of teams who were rejected for training a year ago (CR, or Comparison Rejected teams) and administered similar questionnaires to determine how well these trained teams actually operated back home in their communities. Comparisons were made between the pre- and post-training test responses (short-term impact) and the trained (CT) and rejected (CR) team test responses (Long-term impact). (Author)
