This presentations provides an overview of the results from a pilot study in Rwanda and Malawi. Countries have begun to institutionalize social accountability (SA) through national policies and strategies and integrate SA structures and practices throughout their health system. Based on an Accountability Measurement Framework, a Health Assessment Tool was developed to assess how local and national accountability mechanisms are developed, implemented and institutionalized over time, and to what transformative effect. Testing of this tool explored the status of mature social accountability mechanisms for RMNCH in Rwanda & Malawi.
