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

Although there have been important advances in the collection of key development statistics in recent years (e.g. Living Standards Measurement Surveys, Demographic and Health Surveys, etc.), there is still no standardized data set to measure the quality of service delivery at the facility level. Without consistent and accurate data on what citizens experience when they go to their local school or health clinic, it is difficult to know which services are underperforming and why, and there is consequently little incentive for governments to identify effective ways of improving performance. Recognizing this gap, the goal of this project is to institutionalize the regular collection of a set of indicators that would gauge the quality of services over time and across countries. Based on successful pilot testing in Senegal and Tanzania, the World Bank is setting up a multidonor trust fund, Trust Fund for the Service Delivery Indicators Project, to increase data collection to cover ten to fifteen countries across sub-Saharan Africa.
