In confines of the pilot project pre- and post-testing surveys were conducted. The primary objective of pre-testing survey was to gather baseline database on self-reporting health status, utilization of health care facilities, health expenditures of the targeted population along with key socio-demographic information. Results from the pre-testing survey were compared with the results of the post-testing survey, which was conducted at the end of the project for evaluation of the Pilot in terms of its feasibility and effectiveness.
