Social Accountability 

Social Accountability 

Empowering Communities With a Voice 

To succeed in this arena, stakeholder citizens must understand how to measure social accountability systems, identify gaps, and access evidence. Partners in the Implementation Science Collaborative (ISC) – Women Influencing Health, Education, and Rule of Law (WI-HER) and the Systems for Health Working Group of CORE Group –– developed the Social Accountability Reporting Checklist for Practitioners (SAR4P) to emphasize facets of social accountability that would be useful to report on in addition to what a typical program report would include. Check our Resources section below for more information.  

Our Approach 


To increase the evidence on what works in scaling up social accountability, we investigate successful examples in low- and middle-income countries.

Data Collection 

Our partners develop tools to facilitate data collection through key informant interviews and Focus Group Discussions at country level with local stakeholders.  


Findings from the analysis will inform recommendations and shared practices that contribute to the institutionalization of programs/systems for social accountability in health at a national level.
