Working on Open Contracting can be an initiative to impact real people’s lives, particularly when you reach out to activists and grassroots organizations who are already engaged in their specific fields of action and showcasing how it can become an effective tool to achieve their own goals. In this matter, Hivos and AFIC work closely with Open Contracting Partnership to develop effective strategies in using open contracting and open data for grassroots health advocacy, following successful cases in countries as Ukraine, Nigeria, Uganda, the Philippines and Guatemala. The panel will focus on discussion around case studies to share the experiences, impacts, and strategies developed to use procurement reforms and data for advocacy for better service delivery in health, particularly effective and efficient HIV and AIDS response and public health policy.
