About PMA2020

Performance Monitoring and Accountability 2020 (PMA2020) uses innovative mobile technology to support low-cost, rapid-turnaround surveys monitoring key health and development indicators.

Data are collected at household and health facility levels via mobile phones through a network of female data collectors, known as Resident Enumerators (REs), throughout the country. REs transfer data by phone to a central server using the mobile data network. In real-time, data are validated, aggregated and prepared into tables and graphs, making results quickly available to stakeholders. PMA2020 can be integrated into national monitoring and evaluation systems by offering a low-cost, rapid-turnaround survey platform that can be used for various health data needs.

The PMA2020 project is implemented by local partner universities and research organizations who train train and deploy the cadres of female REs.

Overall direction and support of PMA2020 is provided by the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health in the Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, in collaboration with national partners in each project country. PMA2020 is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
