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


Summary

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.
