COPASAH is a community where practitioners who share an interest and passion for the field of community monitoring for accountability in health interact regularly and engage in exchanging experiences and lessons; sharing resources, capacities and methods; in the production and dissemination of conceptual, methodological and practical outputs towards strengthening the field; and in networking and capacity building among member organizations. This Community of practitioners was established as result of a three day 'Practitioners Convening on Community Monitoring for Accountability in Health' organised by the Accountability and Monitoring in Health Initiative (AMHI) of the Open Society’s Public Health Program in July 2011 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
