The replication paper series (RPS) expands the benefits of 3ie’s replication programme by providing a publication and dissemination outlet for all replication studies of development impact evaluations.
The RPS publishes online and hard-copy replication studies of impact evaluations in 3ie’s online Impact Evaluation Repository, including replication studies funded by 3ie through the replication windows or produced in-house as well as independently submitted replication studies.

Power to the people?: a replication study of a community-based monitoring programme in Uganda
3ie Replication Paper 11, 2015
In this replication study, Donato and Mosqueira re-examine the results of an influential 2009 study, Power to the people: evidence from a randomized field experiment on community-based monitoring in Uganda by Martina Björkman and Jakob Svensson. The replication study reinforces community-based monitoring programmes as a promising intervention that may positively influence both provider behaviour and health facility utilisation. The pure replication verifies the original results. The replication research checks the robustness of the original study through examinations of the pre-intervention balance, with an extra focus on participant wealth, vaccination rates, and the history of community-based organisations in the evaluation area. Overall, the replication researchers determine that community-based health interventions are worthwhile for policymakers to continue pursuing.
