Community-led monitoring is an approach to assessing the quality of health services (HIV/TB services). It is initiated and implemented by community-based organizations and other civil society groups; networks of key populations, people living with HIV and other affected groups. It involves use of a structured tool with a set of questions for gathering quantitative and qualitative data and observations about components of HIV/TB services. The aim is getting input from recipients of these services on quality, accessibility and availability. The data generate is then used by service recipients and other advocates (PLHIV, key populations, CSO, CBOs) to design community actions for change in the status of HIV/TB services.
The community monitors will be responsible for monitoring several healthcare facilities in the mentioned regions in order to assess the status of HIV and TB services provided. Using the data collected, Community Monitors will engage with primary healthcare facility staff, implementing partners, clinic committees and other key stakeholders in order to advocate for improved service delivery and track progress towards this. Community Monitors will keep a meticulous record of all data collected and community level engagements to ensure a transparency and accountability.
Goal
