Performance Monitoring and Accountability 2020 (PMA2020) Water, Sanitation and Hygiene

Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology, Ghana


Performance Monitoring and Accountability 2020 (PMA2020) uses mobile devices to gather nationally representative data on family planning and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) at 6 and 12 month intervals. PMA2020 WASH focuses on data collection of indicators on WASH access and availability, under 5 diarrhea prevalence (1 week recall), as well as on menstrual hygiene management. Data are collected at both households and health clinics via mobile phones through a network of female resident enumerators stationed throughout the country. Enumerators transfer data by phone to a central server via the mobile data network. In real time, data are validated, aggregated and prepared into tables and graphs, making results rapidly available to stakeholders as compared to a paper-and-pencil survey.
