Enabling Environment

The enabling environment is understood mainly as a key determinant of status and changes in bottlenecks, and therefor effective coverage. Following UNICEF’s general Monitoring Results for Equity System (MORES) framework the enabling environment is analyzed through 4 main components. For each of this components we selected indicators based on globally available and validated data, with available time series for the period analyzed. In some instances these indicators were adjusted so that they all are in comparable scale (0%-100%, were 100% represents ideal enabling environment situation) and can be aggregated.

COMPONENTS OF ENABLING ENVIRONMENT INDICATOR USED
Social norms: Widely followed social rules of behaviour Gender Gap Index (World Economic Forum)
Policy Framework: Adequacy of laws and policies Policy Assents – Countdown Reports
Budget/ Expenditure: Allocation and disbursement of required resources Public Health Expenditure p.c. (compared with target from High level task Force on Innovative International Financing)
Government Effectiveness: roles, accountability, coordination, partnership “Government Effectiveness” indicators from the Worldwide Governance Indicators (WGI) collected by the WB.
