ALMA is supporting Burundi’s Ministry of Public 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.
1.Burundi’s malaria scorecard for accountability and action
Burundi’s Malaria Control Programme (National Intégré de Lutte contre le Paludisme – PNILP) developed the national malaria scorecard management tool for accountability and action in 2017 with support from ALMA and partners. The scorecard tool is used to increase awareness about the malaria situation, support the identification of bottlenecks and drive action. At the request of the Ministry of Public Health, ALMA has been supporting the programme with the strengthening of the scorecard and linkage with DHIS2, with particular emphasis on the use of the action tracker.
2.Burundi’s RMNCAH scorecard for accountability and action
Burundi’s RMNCAH scorecard management tool for action and accountability was first developed by the Ministry of Public 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 supported the Ministry of Public Health of Burundi in the rollout and strengthening use of the scorecard management tool.
