Resources for Community-Based Monitoring

18 May 2020

Community-based monitoring is one way of generating granular data to provide feedback to service providers and decision-makers to collaboratively solve barriers and bottlenecks to services and improve the quality of services. Examples of community-based monitoring models include community treatment observatories, human rights complaints mechanisms, and scorecards. Users and communities gather, analyze and use information to improve access to services, better target resources and address human rights and gender barriers.

The Global Fund supports community-based monitoring as it is an effective way to learn from communities on how to improve health services and respond to human rights and gender barriers to health.
