16 September 2018: Near-real time monitoring (NRTM) is a relatively new programming area. I’ve written two new case studies which detail learning from UNICEF’s Eastern and Southern Africa region Programme Monitoring and Response (PMR) Initiative which is supporting decentralised government in Kenya, Swaziland, Uganda and Zimbabwe to synthesise the NRTM of localised data in health and nutrition with community feedback. The aim is to strengthen evidence-based decision-making and planning at the district, ward and village levels where services are delivered, and to involve the community in improving outcomes for women and children such as on maternal health and reducing stunting.
The case studies are:
- Using knowledge exchange to support innovations in programme monitoring and response for child health: Lessons learned on using a community of practice to support NRTM of local health and nutrition interventions. Download
- Moving from islands of excellence to implementation at scale in programme monitoring and response for child health: Lessons learned on going to scale and sustainability for NRTM of local health and nutrition interventions. Download
