Completion of validation of WHO Health Policy Survey

In January 2020, EHG was commissioned a validation of the responses to the global Sexual, Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health Policy Survey for the World Health Organization. With the assistance from four students, we have skimmed 2000 policy, guideline and operational guidance documents from 101 countries in nine languages, in order to assess if 300 survey responses from each member state were correct or incorrect.

During February-December 2020, EHG supervised the validation process and quality assured all sub-products, and we summarised and consolidated the findings in a dataset, 101 country reports and one overall report including recommendations on how to carry out future surveys. EHG also contributed to a peer-reviewed article on the methodology of the validation.
