State-let Accountability Mechanisms (SLAMs): trust and multi-sectoral Action
Since 2013, E4A-MamaYe has supported selected states in Nigeria to establish State Led Accountability Mechanisms (SLAMs). These mechanisms are multi-stakeholder coalitions comprised of government, health professional associations, media, civil society and traditional institutions.
This Learning Brief was developed to outline our learnings in supporting the establishment and implementation of SLAMs and provides an overview of our experience in:
- Building relationships between government and civil society
- Packaging data for evidence-based advocacy
- Contributing to change in health budgets and planning processes
