Listen Up, Uganda! Using Social Accountability for SRHR

Social accountability is a process by which citizens can  hold politicians and policy makers accountable for the services the provide. It enables communities to address corruption, increase trust in public servants and governments, and become key players in setting agendas for policy processes and health systems. This concurrent session will apply the tools of social accountability to access to SRHR, drawing from the example of a social accountability programme in Kabale, Uganda. The aim of the session is to empower participants, who will engage in a mock citizen hearing, to actively address policy issues in their own communities. It will focus in particular on how power and inequality impact access to health services for vulnerable communities, and how to counteract these dynamics. This event will be convened by Kabale Women in Development and Amref Health Africa in Uganda.
