Two Promising Social Accountability Approaches to Improve Health in Malawi: Community Score Cards, and National Health Budget Consultation, Analysis and Advocacy

Publish Date: August 2018
Author: MCSP

This document summarizes two social accountability approaches that have been applied in Malawi for over a decade, with measurable successes. The authors’ intent is to further promote the engagement of civil society to strengthen national health systems, and to share useful experiences more broadly with colleagues within USAID as well as the wider global health community. This is part of a larger effort by MCSP to encourage the incorporation of civil society engagement and the institutionalization of community health programming into the context of national health system strengthening.
