Tamale Jan 31, GNA - Media practitioners in Tamale have been sensitised on using evidence from the District League Table and “I Am Aware” data to inform evidence-based advocacy for improved public service delivery.
The sensitisation workshop, held in Tamale, was organized by Rural Initiatives for Self-Empowerment-Ghana (RISE-Ghana) with support from the Centre for Democratic Development, Ghana as part of efforts to improve governance and the quality of service delivery at the district level.
The “I Am Aware” is an online platform where data on public service delivery in sectors including health, education, sanitation, water and security are published for all to access and use for evidence-based advocacy.
It was to create awareness and identify key service delivery sectors such as health, education and water for citizens and the media to champion and monitor for improved service delivery for better outcomes.
Mr Awal Ahmed, Executive Director of RISE-Ghana, encouraged the media practitioners to use the “I Am Aware” data to advocate for improved public service delivery at the district level, adding, “By so doing, you will also be playing your part”.
