About the project
The Indian Institute of Health Management Research (IIHMR) in collaboration with the Bill and Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health at Johns Hopkins University’s Bloomberg School of Public Health is implementing the project entitled PMA Agile in India. The current period of collaboration is July 1, 2017 to June 30,2019. PMA Agile is a grant that has been developed to capitalize on PMA2020 to build a monitoring and evaluation platform for large-scale projects that will enable near-continuous tracking of performance and progress toward their intended results.  These projects represent “Clients” of PMA Agile.  PMA Agile will build the capacity for and promote the use of programmatically-relevant monitoring and evaluation (M&E) data at national and subnational levels by local governments, research institutions and implementing partners to support evidence-based decision making. The PMA Agile approach will, track change at the health system level, through quarterly (moving to monthly) public and private health facility audits (called Agile surveys) and periodically through collection of data from households/females on exposure to project interventions (e.g., brand awareness, participation in special outreach activities, media exposure).
