Accountability for Women’s and Children’s Health

Call for case studies

For the iERG 2015 report

2015 is the last year of our mandate. Why not to use this last opportunity to share your evidence-based case studies for our fourth and final 2015 report?

The iERG 2015 report will focus on a final assessment of the impact made by the Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health commitments, together with implementation of the recommendations of the UN Commission on Information and Accountability for Women’s and Children’s Health and those of the UN Commission on Life-Saving Commodities. We will be particularly interested to hear from you on examples of successful and challenging implementation of RMNCAH strategies by donor countries and by any of the 75 countries of our concern; results-based financing; measurement of quality and effectiveness of management; and RMNCAH challenges in Ebola- and emergency affected countries.


  • 250-500 word summary with up to 10 references;
  • references should refer to evidence that may come from peer-reviewed research, reports produced by civil society, governments, UN agencies, etc.;
  • it might include a figure or a table.


Case studies should follow this general format:

  • set the scene and provide the evidence for the case;
  • describe the case itself;
  • discuss lessons learnt and the difficulties experienced;
  • link results to the future and discuss the potential implications for policy and practice.

Note from The Lancet:

The best abstracts will be reviewed and if accepted, published on the web site of The Lancet.
