Information is Power: Experimental Evidence in the Long-Run Impact of Community Based Monitoring
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Institute for International Economic Studies.
2014 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This paper presents the results of two field experiments on

local accountability in primary health care in Uganda. Efforts

to stimulate beneficiary control, coupled with the provision

of report cards on staff performance, resulted in significant

improvements in health care delivery and health outcomes

in both the short and the longer run. Efforts to stimulate

beneficiary control without providing information on

performance had no impact on quality of care or health outcomes.

The paper shows that informed users are more likely

to identify and challenge (mis)behavior by providers and as a

result turn their focus to issues that they can manage locally.
