ACCESS Madagascar: Improving Health Outcomes in Remote and Low Connectivity Settings with CommCare

Project Overview

The Accessible Continuum of Care and Essential Services Sustained (ACCESS) program is a five-year project funded by USAID, led by Management Sciences for Health (MSH) and dedicated to strengthening Madagascar’s health system.

The goal of the project is to accelerate sustainable health impacts for the Malagasy population through three primary objectives:

  • Quality health services are sustainably available and accessible to all Malagasy communities in the program’s target regions
  • Health systems function effectively to support quality service delivery
  • The Malagasy people sustainably adopt health behaviors and social norms

Since 2016, the program has been using CommCare in order to improve the quality of services by adapting the Madagascar Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) paper-based forms to facilitate patient support and decision making, as well as provide job aids, counseling and disease classification tools.
