This generic rapid assessment tool, published in 2009 by multiple NGOs and civil society groups, covers a broad range of linkages issues, such as policy, systems, and services. By design, it aims to provide a guide for assessing linkages that can be adapted as needed to regional or national contexts based on a number of factors. Countries are encouraged to review the questions and the scope of the assessment and modify it according to the local situation.This tool can be used as a “standalone” activity or can be integrated into a larger review of the national response. It focuses on questions which can be answered in desk reviews and individual or group interviews (Policy and Systems sections), and individual interviews of various service providers and clients (Service delivery section).
