Abstract

In neglected tropical disease (NTD) programmes, beneficiary feedback mechanisms (BFMs) can be utilised to enhance programme quality and strengthen health outcomes by promoting the participation and empowerment of local stakeholders. This article reflects on the experiences of the Ascend programme in embedding a BFM in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Nigeria where key NTD data collection tools were adapted and prioritised across various elements of the NTD programme. Findings suggest that listening and responding to the needs of beneficiaries and building upon existing systems within NTD programmes is highly valuable in informing the planning and delivery of NTD activities.
