State-Led Accountability Mechanisms (SLAMs)
Civil society plays a central role in holding the government to account. To ensure commitments are followed-up with political will and action, MNCH2 is working with civil society actors and governments in supported states to implement State-Led Accountability Mechanisms (SLAMs). SLAMs provide independent expertise, a collation of voices on RMNCH issues, as well as facilitating linkages with other government structures to encourage and improve cross-government coordination. They also work with the media to reach both the public and decision-makers; where journalists are able to ask questions, share evidence, and equip the public with vital and potentially life-saving information. This case study looks into the various ways MNCH2 strengthens accountability for health through SLAMs.
