In Angola, SPRI is conducting a poverty, vulnerability and deprivation analysis of children using the Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis (MODA) methodology applied to the Inquerito de Indicadores Multiplos e de Saude (IIMS) 2015-2016 dataset of Angola. This analysis enables to increase national knowledge about non-monetary child poverty in Angola through capacity development on the methodology, understanding of the findings and possible policy directions of action, and to assist the Government of Angola to define the baseline for the child related Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 1.2 indicator.

This study identifies to what extent children in Angola are deprived from adequate access to nutrition, health, child protection, malaria prevention, education, information, housing, water and sanitation. The study seeks to understand who the deprived children are, and what the deprivations that they face are, among the multiple dimensions that impede their survival and development.

Technicians from the Instituto Nacional de Estatística (INE) and Ministério da Acção Social, Família e Promoção da Mulher (MAS.FPM) have been trained on the multidimensional poverty measurement and received hands-on instructions on its estimation by the SPRI team.
