This case study was conducted as part of research commissioned by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), onthe impact of community engagement and accountability on public health emergencies. The overall objective of the research is to identify, understand and document how community engagement and accountability approaches have changed, impacted and/or influenced Red Cross Red Crescent programmes and community health systems during public health emergencies. Based on initial discussions between the IFRC and National Societies, five countries were selected to document a variety of community engagement and accountability practices with communities across the world: Guinea, Georgia, Guatemala, Indonesia and Malawi.
