World Bank

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

Strategies
Overview
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.
