All IHP+ signatories are invited to participate in the next round of monitoring in 2014. Participation is voluntary but encouraged as it is a key commitment in the IHP+ Global Compact.

Invitation to participate in IHP+ Monitoring 2014

The deadline for responding is 23 April 2014.

At the last IHP+ Country Health Teams Meeting in December 2012, partners agreed that monitoring should continue but be adapted to be more country-based (Meeting Report). We have made important changes in this round of monitoring to: 

1.  Make the exercise less time-consuming

2.  Strengthen domestic accountability for results

3.  Reinforce links with the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation (GPEDC).

We aim to have findings ready for discussion in the next IHP+ Country Health Teams Meeting at the end of 2014. As before, we will publish a global synthesis report on IHP+ performance and scorecards.

Participation is voluntary, but we encourage you to do so. In the last round, 36 signatories participated (19 countries and 17 development partners) and we would like to see more participants in this round.

To reinforce the shift to more country-based reporting, we ask that the Ministry of Health and development partners agree locally on participation in this exercise and that the Ministry of Health then sends an email response about participation.  

For answers to key questions about the process please download this two-page document or visit the Monitoring 2014 section of the website.

RED+ Consortium
We introduce the RED+ Consortium who will support the monitoring process and produce the global report. It is led by hera (Health Research for Action, Belgium), together with itad, Development Initiatives, and CHESTRAD.

The consortium will follow up directly with countries that wish to participate. 

Please respond by 23 April 2014.
