PPRHAA, or Peer and Participatory Rapid Health Appraisal for Action, is a participatory process and a component of our IMPACT methodology. It involves both managers and staff from facilities being assessed, and incorporates consultation with some of the communities and clients served by the facilities.

PPRHAA appraises and collects information on all the major aspects of a health facility or group of health facilities and their management structures, with a focus on management systems, as well as the views of the community and clients served.

The process includes collecting information for a range of indicators on the services, coverage and performance of the health facility/institution over five years (or for as many years as data is available), so progress and trends can be assessed objectively and comparisons made between similar facilities and the same facility over time.
