The 2020 PMA platform was launched in 2013 to address the need for performance monitoring to track progress towards the objectives and principles of the 2020 Family Planning initiative. The project introduced an innovative approach to data collection, designed to meet this need, by employing only resident interviewers recruited from within or near the enumeration areas (EAs) of the survey sample, and training them in the use of mobile technologies on smartphones to collect and send data to a cloud server. This approach not only offers the opportunity for rapid data validation and compilation, but also allows results to be delivered in a relatively short period of time. In addition, another key innovation of PMA 2020 was to collect data from both households and women aged 15-49 years to measure contraceptive demand and use, and from health delivery sites (HDSs), both public and private, serving the EAs concerned to measure the availability of services and the supply of amenities.

PMA 2020 is being implemented in 11 countries : Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Niger, Nigeria, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo under the overall coordination of the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health (Gates Institute) at the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) and in partnership with a network of universities, research institutions and national statistical agencies and with financial support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. In Côte d’Ivoire, two waves of the PMA 2020 surveys were conducted between 2017 and 2018.

Based on the results of PMA 2020, funding over four (04) years (2019-2022) was obtained for a second phase of the project. This new phase called Performance Monitoring for Action (PMA), still funded by the Gates Foundation, will be coordinated at the global level by the Gates Institute and Jhpiego. During this second phase, while pursuing the initial objectives of the first phase, PMA will bring methodological innovations: longitudinal monitoring of women over three (years) in order to better understand contraceptive dynamics, the integration of a specific module on adolescents and women’s empowerment, etc. The second phase of the project will also include the development of a new module on the impact of the project on women’s empowerment. The implementation of the PMA survey in Côte d’Ivoire for the next phase has been entrusted to the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Statistique et d’Economie Appliqué (ENSEA).



As part of the implementation of the Performance Monitoring for Action (PMA) project in Côte d’Ivoire, the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Statistique et d’Economie Appliquée (ENSEA) has been ensuring the technical implementation of the project’s activities since 2019. For this task, ENSEA benefits from the programmatic support of Jhpiego and the technical support of the…

The PMA objective is to advance knowledge of family planning and reproductive health dynamics at the programmatic level. To achieve this, PMA will collect dynamic and cross-cutting high quality data to enable concrete measurement and improve programme performance through a sustainable and innovation-driven data collection platform based on PMA 2020.

The project has four interrelated objectives:

PMA ++
  • Objective 1:

    Conduct high quality surveys with a focus on programme data on FP and RH in targeted geographical areas.

  • Objective 2:

    Increasing the use of PMA data, by a growing number of stakeholders, for decision-making.

  • Objective 3:

    Create a viable, costed and sustainable LDC platform for potential donors.

  • Objective 4:

    Establish state-of-the-art standards and practices in business management and accountability.
