As part of the MHTF and Woodrow Wilson Center’s Advancing Dialogue on Maternal Health series, this maternal health dialogue will discuss equitable participation of women, youth, and their communities in the design, delivery, and monitoring of reproductive and maternal health policies and programs. Social accountability mechanisms create meaningful links between citizens, service providers, and governments that can in turn lead to more responsive, accountable, and effective health systems. In Malawi, the government and CARE are currently implementing a Community Score Card at the district level to improve health outcomes and ensure rights. Are such social accountability efforts the answer to keeping rights at the center of our sexual, reproductive and maternal health efforts?
