Social Accountability

We have contributed to social accountability knowledge and tools through (1) the development of the Social Accountability Reporting Checklist for Practitioners (SAR4P), which highlights facets of social accountability that would be useful to integrate into typical reporting systems; and (2) a case study that examined the implementation of the National Social Accountability System in Health Assessment Tool (NSASHAT) in Rwanda and Malawi. 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.
