On Tuesday 23 March 2021, the African Leaders Malaria Alliance (ALMA) partnered with the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) to co-host a webinar about the new ALMA Scorecard Hub and Kenya’s experience with scorecard management tools.

In February, His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta, President of the Republic of Kenya and ALMA chair, launched the ALMA Scorecard Hub. The hub website provides countries and partners with access to knowledge about scorecard management tools for accountability and action. In this webinar, we highlighted how users can use the Scorecard Hub to share scorecards and best practices, as well as improve their own scorecard tools through our guides and online courses.

Following this, Dr Bashir Issak from Kenya’s Ministry of Health showcased how Kenya uses the scorecard tool to improve health outcomes for reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health (RMNCAH) across the country.
