Based on responses from 19 development partners and 17 countries - all signatories to the IHP+ Global Compact - the IHP+Results survey 2012 reported that some progress has been made in aid effectiveness for health, but most of it comes from countries, with very few changes in development partners’ behaviour. Drawing on two countries’ experiences with the IHP+ Results survey 2012, and from other global processes such as the new Global Partnership for Development Cooperation, and the Commission on Information and Mutual Accountability (COIA), the IHP+ Mutual Accountability Working Group discussed three possible elements of future monitoring of development cooperation for health:
a) how are results used; b) what to monitor, and c) how to monitor.
Broad consensus emerged on the following aspects:
- monitoring on commitments on aid effectiveness should continue to be voluntary;
- it should focus on country-level reporting, while some global monitoring will continue to provide the peer-pressure needed at global level;
- it should use a minimum set of relevant indicators, giving a sense of continuity, while building on the new indicators in the Global Partnership for Development Cooperation;
- more effective mechanisms for the use of results in country processes should be identified, including a more effective presence of civil society;
- more qualitative information on processes and context should be part of future monitoring.
Next steps: the IHP+ Core Team will consult widely on these options through an online survey open to all IHP+ signatories during October 2012. Results of the consultation will feed into the Country Health Teams Meeting in Nairobi, Kenya, in December 2012, where further strategic discussions will take place on how health aid effectiveness should be monitored in the future.
