2014 Round of Monitoring Development Effectiveness in Health Progress & key issues 20 June 2014
Reminder: what makes the 2014 monitoring round different from the 2012 round? • DPs reportat country level to promote country ownership ….. => More likely that data are used locally & mutual accountability is strengthened • Reduced transaction costs – fewer indicators, exploring publicly available data sources …. But? • Data collation (existing data and existing modalities); => global reporting to align with country cycles • Framework combines IHP+ and GPEDC indicators. => working closely with OECD to build on experience in GPEDC monitoring (2013)
What is being monitored? • Six issues asagreed by IHP+ signatories: • Health development cooperation is focused on results • Health development cooperation is more predictable • Health aid is on budget • Civil society is engaged • Mutual accountability is strengthened • PFM systems are strengthened and used
Which countries participate? 25 IHP+ partner countries, including Cambodia
Which DPs participate? • No complete picture yet on which DPs are participating • But in each country MoH has made contact with the DPs / stakeholders (or planned to do so) • Partial information suggests a range from 5 to 14 DPs per country • Some countries include NGOs (if providing funds to the sector)
Data collation & country support • Tools developed & shared with all countries • Most countries have started data collation • Overall good progress but slower in 10 countries • DRC, Mali and Sierra Leone have opted to be ‘focus countries’ with more intense support over next 6 months, beyond just data collation • Challenge: timeframe to be adapted
Other products • Mutual accountability options paper • Toolbox • Data collation tools & guidance papers • Score cards • Webpage / website • Other (e.g. briefing papers to promote use)
Some points for discussion • How to facilitate effective dissemination of results and use of data, within countries and in agencies? • The more country-based approach being taken this time is new. But early signs are that these are steps in the right direction. Any feedback on the process? • Any other point for discussion?
