Accountability for Women’s and Children’s Health

Call for submission of documentation for good practice and obstacles


2012: iERG call for evidence

Purpose:

In pursuing three of our functions we are calling for submission of documentation on good practices and obstacles. These functions are:

  • identify good practice, including in policy and service delivery, accountability arrangements and value-for-money approaches relating to the health of women and children;
  • identify obstacles to implementing both the Global Strategy and the Commission's recommendations;
  • assess progress towards greater transparency in the flow of resources and achieving results.

These documents will be an important source informing and complementing our review and analysis.

Topics:

We are particularly interested to receive submissions on the following themes related to delivery of promises and implementation of the Commission's recommendations:

  • successful innovative programmes, involving use of ICT;
  • outstanding transparency of a donor institution;
  • outstanding transparency of a government;
  • accountability for resources and information for five specific groups of population:
    • refugees
    • displaced populations
    • people living on occupied territories
    • young women
    • women who seek access to safe abortion
  • any other subjects relevant to the work of the iERG (see Terms of Reference).

Format:

Submissions are accepted in the following formats:

  • descriptive essays, with indication of potential impact;
  • research papers, including economic evaluation;
  • human interest stories, news and media articles, visual items (tables, graphs, photo portfolios, video materials, etc.)

Research papers should contain sections describing background, methods, results and discussions. Other forms of submissions need to describe the context, methods, processes; and specific lessons, as well as generalizable lessons. All submissions should discuss the potential implications for policy and practice.
