Problems during the implementation of the project:

Interventions: Presence of healthcare workers and Disaster Risk Management experts in the field for informing the public and encouraging them to actively take part in the project, and boosting the activities to recruit CHVs from other centers.The interventions somewhat has led to solving the problem.

The second problem: An intense gust of wind blew the posters away, and the residents refused to reinstall them. It was acknowledged that, given the weather conditions, there is a possibility of repetition of the problems with the posters. Repeated reinstallation will generate noise and it might be disturbing to the residents.
