Social Accountability in the Health Sector
The Social Accountability in the Health Sector (SAHS) Programme aims to improve citizen engagement to improve accountability in health sector in Nepal. SAHS focuses on collaborating with civil society groups, national policy actors, and government health institutions to understand the challenges and deepen social accountability efforts in the health sector. Through the recommendations from situational analyses, applied political economy analyses and multi-stakeholder dialogue, key health sector actors will be able to implement more effective social accountability initiatives. The project ultimately contributes to Nepal’s National Health Sector Programme III, which is designed to improve health services in Nepal, particularly for the socially excluded groups.
Pact’s ENGAGE program, which stands for Enhance Non-Governmental Actors and Grassroots Engagement, aims to increase citizen awareness of and engagement in civic activities at the national, regional and local levels. Beginning in Fall 2016, ENGAGE’s goals are to increase civic education, promote democratic reforms through local coalitions, improve the capacity of civil society organizations and ensure sustainability of civic engagement in Ukraine. In addition, ENGAGE seeks to promote inclusion of marginalized groups and build demand for fundamental European values.
