Linking governance to Services delivery

The Health unit management committee (HUMC) has a major role to play in ensuring that the lower level public health facilities focus on quality improvement and achieving the necessary outcomes including access to quality maternal and child health services. Improving quality is about making healthcare safer, effective, patient centred, timely, efficient and equitable.

One of the strategy HNU uses is building the capacity of the HUMC in social accountability tools especially coCommunity Audit of Services sessionsmmunity score card (CSC) and empowering the Village healyh team members (VHTs) to improve performance at facility through training in quality assurance approaches.The community score cards is a tool which aims to empower women and men to raise their issues and perception of service delivery and evaluate the services provided by public health facilities. In return it offers government and health service provides an opportunity to provide explanations and planned action to deliver services.
