Use of Community Health Data for Shared Accountability Abstract:

MEASURE Evaluation, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), developed guidance for use by country ministries of health (MOHs), local government, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), civil society, and community leaders to foster community engagement and shared accountability for monitoring and responding to significant health events and concerns (e.g., pregnancies,bmaternal and neonatal deaths, and epidemics). It is available here: That document takes a community-centric approach, whereby the community determines its own higher-priority health concerns and actions, in line with the principles of achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for health (United Nations, 2015). It draws from a variety of experiences and examples of community-level data collection, presentation, and use for taking action. This brief provides an overview of the guidance.
