The Service Delivery Indicators (SDI) initiative collects data on service delivery in schools and health facilities. It helps countries identify areas of progress and areas for improvement with potential lessons for progress within and between countries.
To date, more than 3,200 schools (and 34,000 teachers) and 8,000 health facilities (and 67,000 health workers) have been sampled in 26 SDI surveys completed in 12 African countries, capturing the health and primary education service delivery experience of over 500 million people. The SDI initiative is now being scaled up globally.
Beyond capacity generation, the SDI initiative provides relevant inputs for research. So far, SDIs have been featured in about 45 publications, among which more than 15 peer-reviewed academic articles published in leading economics, education, and health journals.
