Monitoring effective development cooperation in health: results

The 2016 monitoring round tracked eight effective development cooperation practices in the health sector using indicators for both governments and for development partners. This broadly mapped onto the 'seven behaviours', a number of critical areas where international development partners need to change their behaviour. 

Data collection included both quantitative and qualitative information. In addition to government and development partners, the qualitative survey also included civil society and private sector.

Thirty countries signed up for the 2016 monitoring round, a 30% increase from the fourth round. Results were discussed at country-level multi-stakeholder meetings and findings were published on a country-by-country basis. Information about development partner performance can also be found below. 

The main findings of the 2016 monitoring round will feed into the UHC2030 Global Monitoring Report, together with the ongoing performance review of development partners.

You can follow the links to country pages below. Each country page has (or will have) a report, a scorecard of results, a powerpoint presentation with key findings and a short story about the multi-stakeholder event. Results are available below for all countries. Documentation is in the language of the country, but will be available in both English and French shortly.

Development partner performance reports can be found beneath the country reports.

Effective development cooperation practices in the health sector

  1. A strong single national health strategy is supported by both government and development partners; they agree on priorities reflected in the national health strategy, and underpinning sub-sector strategies, through a process of inclusive development and joint assessment, and a reduction in separate exercises.
  2. Resource inputs are recorded on the national health budget and in line with national priorities, with predictability of government and development partner funding.
  3. Financial management systems are harmonized and aligned; requisite capacity building done or underway, and country systems strengthened and used.
  4. Procurement/supply systems are harmonized and aligned, parallel systems phased out, country systems strengthened and used with a focus on best value for money. National ownership can include benefiting from global procurement.
  5. Joint monitoring of process and results is based on one information and accountability platform; joint processes for mutual accountability on EDC are in place, such as Joint Annual Reviews or compact reviews.
  6. Technical support is strategically planned and provided in a well-coordinated manner; opportunities for systematic learning between countries are developed and supported by agencies through south-south and triangular cooperation.
  7. Civil society operates within an environment which maximizes its engagement in and contribution to health sector development.

An eighth dimension was added: the private sector is engaged within an environment which maximises its engagement in and contribution to health sector development.
