The Role of Social Accountability in Improving Respectful Care

Respectful care is of increasing interest within reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health (RMNCAH) care. Concurrently, there has been a call for health systems to be accountable to the populations they serve for delivering quality care. This package of materials focuses on the role of social accountability in enhancing respectful care across RMNCAH.

This package of materials includes:

  • A technical report that examines the empirical evidence and theoretical basis of social accountability interventions’ influence on respectful care across RMNCAH;
  • A companion technical brief on the use of social accountability approaches to improve respectful care in RMNCAH services; and
  • A research brief that presents a conceptual framework with a theoretical pathway from social accountability to respectful care in RMNCAH.
