For A Project To Benchmark The Quality Of Health And Education Services In Sub-Saharan Africa

This project is intended to improve the quality of government-provided social services by improving the information available about the knowledge that teachers and health workers have, the extent to which they use that knowledge, and the availability of inputs for them to provide services. The project collects and disseminates policy-relevant data about the quality of health and education services in sub-Saharan African countries, and provides training to researchers and others who use the information. The data, based on systematic observations of a representative sample of schools and health facilities, can be used for a range of purposes, from policy dialogue between the World Bank and national governments to social accountability. In the first phase of the project, 20 surveys were carried out in nine countries, revealing significant deficits in service delivery quality. During this second phase, partially funded by this grant, the project will cover five more countries, as well as eight additional rounds of health and education surveys.

Grants to this Grantee
for engagement of civil society organizations and the Women, Business and the Law data and analyses  
Women, Business and the Law (WBL) is a program of the World Bank that systematically documents and measures legal and regulatory barriers to women’s economic empowerment around the world. The program will build upon the previous grants by strengthening the capacity of civil society organizations in sub-Saharan Africa to understand and use information from WBL to advocate for gender equality reforms. It will also deepen engagement at the local level and on context-relevant specific issues, and support peer-to-peer knowledge exchange events among policymakers and civil society organizations.
for a project on gender data  
This project continues a partnership among the World Bank, Data2X, the International Labour Organization, and the Food and Agriculture Organization to develop a methodology to measure unpaid work, as a contribution to implementation of the standards adopted by the 19th International Conference of Labour Statisticians. The project will support the agencies’ efforts to jointly develop and test measurement approaches in one country.
