Food Security, Health, Logistics, Protection, Nutrition, Water Sanitation Hygiene, Camp Coordination / Management, Education, Emergency Shelter and NFI, Emergency Telecommunications, Early Recovery AAP-1 Feedback Mechanisms Number of feedback received (including complaints) which have been acted upon

Feedback mechanisms provide a means for all those affected to comment on and thus indirectly influence programme planning and implementation (see HAP’s ‘participation’ benchmark). They include focus group discussions, surveys, interviews and meetings on ‘lessons learnt’ with a representative sample of all the affected population (see ECB’s Good Enough Guide for tools and Guidance notes 3–4). The findings and the agency’s actions in response to feedback should be systematically shared with the affected population. (Sphere Core Standard 1, Guidance Note 2)

Food Security, Health, Logistics, Protection, Nutrition, Water Sanitation Hygiene, Camp Coordination / Management, Education, Emergency Shelter and NFI, Emergency Telecommunications, Early Recovery AAP-2 Sharing Information Number of information products distributed to the affected population through a variety of mechanisms on humanitarian program planning, functioning and progress

People have a right to accurate and updated information about actions taken on their behalf. Information can reduce anxiety and is an essential foundation of community responsibility and ownership. At a minimum, clusters and agencies should provide a description of the cluster's role and responsibilities, agency’s mandate and project(s), the population’s entitlements and rights, and when and where to access assistance (see HAP’s ‘sharing information’ benchmark). (Sphere Core Standard 1, Guidance Note 4)

Possible examples:

Food Security, Health, Logistics, Protection, Nutrition, Water Sanitation Hygiene, Camp Coordination / Management, Education, Emergency Shelter and NFI, Emergency Telecommunications, Early Recovery AAP-3 Participation Number of persons consulted (disaggregated by sex/age) before designing a program/project [alternatively: while implementing the program/project]

Participation in design of assessments, programmes, evaluations etc, means that a selected segment(s) of the affected populaiton have a direct influence on decision making.  Measures should be taken to ensure the participation of members of all groups of affected people – young and old, men and women. Special efforts should be made to include people who are not well represented, are marginalised (e.g. by ethnicity or religion) or otherwise ‘invisible’ (e.g. housebound or in an institution).

Health H-A.1.a H1 General clinical services & essential trauma care Number of functional basic health units/10 000 population

Proxy indicator of geographical accessibility, and of equity in availability of health facilities across different administrative units.

Health H-A.1.b H1 General clinical services & essential trauma care Number of functional health centres/50 000 population

Proxy indicator of geographical accessibility, and of equity in availability of Health Facilties across different administrative units

Health H-A.1.c H1 General clinical services & essential trauma care Number of functional district-rural hospitals/250 000 population

Proxy indicator of geographical accessibility, and of equity in availability of Health Facilties across different administrative units

Health H-A.2 H4.2 Maternal and newborn care Number of functional health facilities with Comprehensive Emergency Obstetric Care (CEmOC) per 500,000 population

Proxy indicator for the physical availability and geographical accessibility of emergency obstetric services and their distribution across districts in the affected areas. An unbalance between the availability of BEmOC and CEmOC (with too few BEmOC) is often observed.

Health H-A.2a H4.2 Maternal and newborn care Number of functional health facility with Basic Emergency Obstetric Care (BEmOC) per 500,000 population

Proxy indicator for the physical availability and geographical accessibility of emergency obstetric services and their distribution across districts. An unbalance between the availability of BEmOC and CEmOC (with too few BEmOC) is often observed. 

Health H-A.5 H1 General clinical services & essential trauma care Number of inpatient beds per 10,000 population

Indicator for the availability of hospital beds across crisis areas and proxy indicator of equity in the allocation of resources.

Health H-A.6 H4.3 Sexual violence Percentage of functional health facilities with clinical management of rape survivor services

Key indicator to measure the allocation of resources and the availability of services to address consequences of sexual violence.
