Scorecard Tools

What are country Scorecards?

Drawing on the success of the continental ALMA Scorecard for Accountability and Action, Heads of State requested support to develop country owned national scorecards.

This work has been informed by ALMA’s experience in developing and implementing the ALMA malaria scorecard for action and accountability.

To date, ALMA has assisted 40 countries across Africa in the development and strengthening of national and sub-national scorecard management tools and action trackers.

  • Facilitating action, accountability and advocacy at national, and sub-national levels through the action tracker and workplan functions, in addition to data visualisation tools.
  • Scorecards are updated quarterly and integrated into existing management and decision making processes.

ALMA has continuously supported the implementation and strengthening of country scorecards in order to:

  • Strengthen the capacity to ensure sustained use of the tool
