Effective accountability must involve all stakeholdersgovernments, donors, multilateral agencies, philanthropic institutions, NGOs, the private sector, and health care professionalsand should meet three principles, according to the report:

  1. Accountability must be tied to measuring results, especially outcomes and impact.
  2. Because accountability requires national leadership and ownership, MNCH accountability should be tied to national health strategies and national monitoring and evaluation efforts.
  3. Existing country- and global-level accountability mechanisms and processes should be built on, enhanced, and strengthened.

The 2010 Global Campaign Reports emphasizes the need for accurate reporting of births and deaths, which currently does not exist in many low and middle-income countries. Accurate statistics on births, deaths, and causes of deaths are needed to provide evidence for any improvements in health and to measure progress toward meeting the MDGs.

Innovation in information technology, including deeper penetration of broadband access, provides new opportunities to improve civil registration systems in countries through on-line health records and public health information. The challenge will continue to be to ensure that such efforts are driven by need rather than technology alone.

Dr. Richard Sezibera, Minister of Health of Rwanda, will be attending the Delhi meeting to participate in a special working lunch of health ministers, and to represent the Accountability Working Group of the Global Strategy, which Rwanda co-chairs with the Government of Canada and the World Health Organization.

Rwanda is a global leader in the use of mobile technology for strengthening health systems, implementing a real-time a
