In September 2017, with support from ALMA and partners, Sudan developed two scorecards: one for Reproductive Maternal Newborn Child and Adolescent (RMNCAH) Health and another for Malaria Control and Elimination.
This week (29th January – 02 February 2018) in Khartoum, the Maternal and Child Health programme and the National Malaria Control Programme launched their scorecards during high-level events in the capital Khartoum presided over by the Hon Minster of Health and representatives of UN organizations and other partners. In his remarks, The Honorable Minister of Health, Dr. Bahar Idriss Abu Garda thanked ALMA for their work in “supporting the development of scorecards across the continent, which are one of the best tools for tracking the performance in countries in Africa. He confirmed Sudan’s commitment to the use of the scorecards to drive action and promote accountability in her efforts of delivering health services. ”
Also this week, at the request of the MCH programme, ALMA supported Republic of Sudan in developing a scorecard for their Expanded Immunization Programme (EPI), which will track the performance and drive action on priority immunization interventions. Sudan is the first country on the African continent to develop an EPI scorecard.
