[12.09.19-12.12.19] Transparency, Accountability, and Health Care

Series of talks in the U.K.: Can Transparency and Accountability Programs Empower Communities to Improve Their Health Care?


For the last six years the Transparency for Development (T4D) project has sought to understand the role of transparency and accountability programs in empowering communities to improve their health care – as well as how and why we see such mixed evidence when these programs are implemented in the real world. The unique mixed methods research project combined two large-scale randomized controlled trials in Indonesia and Tanzania with extensive qualitative interviews, observations, and ethnographic studies, as well as a second phase including three smaller studies in Ghana, Malawi, and Sierra Leone. Join four scholars and practitioners from the T4D team as they share results – including the good, the bad, and the unclear – from this one-of-a-kind research project about these popular approaches to citizen engagement and participation, and to discuss what is needed next in this important field.
