Social Accountability Reporting Checklist for Practitioners


The verbiage from this section has been moved to the “Social Accountability Reporting Checklist” page, where it felt more appropriate and relevant to the content. It feels that this section requires more specific background on how the development of this checklist came about, the gaps it fills, where/how it has been utilized, etc. Tell us about your group and the impetus for this effort!

Adapt for use: The Social Accountability Reporting Checklist checklist is adapted from the ‘Social Accountability Reporting for Research (SAR4Research): Checklist to Strengthen Reporting on Studies on Social Accountability in the Literature’ (forthcoming, 2021). To make the SAR4Research checklist meet the needs of practitioners we: (1) reviewed the WHO’s Programme Reporting Standards for Sexual, Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health (PRS) to compare and contrast content; (2) reviewed a sample of 5 publicly available practitioner project documents to compare and contrast what content was covered; and (3) held three rounds of consultations with a diverse group of practitioners to enhance the usability and quality of the practitioners checklist.
