External Data Quality Audits (DQAs) conducted in relevant countries.

Status Achievement of overall target
On track Seven countries passed their DQAs (Eritrea, Guinea, Lesotho, Kenya, Sierra Leone and Sudan) and four failed. Three more countries (DPR Korea, Central African Republic and DR Congo) are expected to be completed by the end of 2004 or January 2005. Somalia and Haiti were postponed.

Responsible entity: Secretariat
Completed by: December 2005
Total budget: $1,472,720

Target description and how it will help reach GAVI milestones

Rewards disbursement is conditional to DQA results. DQA is intended to validate reported coverage figures. DQA is also an important tool to improve the reporting system.

ACCESS MILESTONE: With successful DQAs and improved performance, countries will get continued funding and be able to further increase coverage.

Justification for selection of activities

DQA is the only current tool providing external validation of reporting systems, therefore permitting countries to get performance-based funding.
