ALMA is supporting Burkina Faso’s Ministry of Health in the implementation of the country’s malaria and Reproductive Maternal Newborn Child and Adolescent Health (RMNCAH) scorecard management tools for accountability and action.
Burkina Faso’s malaria scorecard for accountability and action was developed in 2017 by the Ministry of Health. Led by the Programme National de Lutte contre le Paludisme (PNLP). The scorecard is used to increase awareness about the malaria situation, support the identification of bottlenecks and drive action. At the request of the Ministry of Health, ALMA has helped to link Burkina Faso’s scorecard to their national health information system (DHIS2) and has been supporting the programme with strengthening the decentralized use of data through the scorecard, at the regional level.
Burkina Faso’s RMNCAH scorecard management tool was first developed by the Ministry of Health in 2015 in collaboration with ALMA and partners. The scorecard tool is used to track key maternal and child health indicators, identify bottlenecks and drive action at the national and regional level. Since its rollout, ALMA has been supporting the Ministry of Health in the strengthening of the scorecard management tool.
