February 2019 – July 2019
The Community Engagement and Scorecard Partnership is a participatory intervention for assessment, planning, and monitoring and evaluation of HIV services. It allows communities to proactively engage with health facility providers, and encourages enhanced service quality, efficiency, and accountability. This dynamic process builds robust communities of committed change agents empowered to improve access to, and delivery of, quality health services. After thoughtful design, the scorecard will be consistently deployed to gather data used to inform decision-making and positive change. The objectives of this partnership are to: develop the analytical framework to advocate for scaling up community-based health programs aimed at improving delivery of HIV services in PEPFAR countries; and conduct a landscape analysis of community engagement programming in HIV and other health sectors in PEPFAR countries in the context of using the community scorecard process in policy advocacy activities. This partnership supports the Local Capacity Initiative, which was established by the U.S. Government in 2013 to strengthen sustainability of national HIV and AIDS responses through increased advocacy capacity of local civil society organizations. Community scorecards provide valuable insight into issues that districts and communities face, and are a critical component in planning data-driven advocacy activities.
