FP/RH Indicators Database Launched
The MEASURE Evaluation Population and Reproductive Health (PRH) project is pleased to launch the new Family Planning/Reproductive Health Indicators Database!
This is an updated version of the popular two-volume Compendium of Indicators for Evaluating Reproductive Health Programs (MEASURE Evaluation, 2002).
This new database provides:
- a menu of the most widely used indicators for evaluating family planning/reproductive health (FP/RH) programs in developing countries
- 35 technical areas with over 420 key FP/RH indicators, including definitions, data requirements, data sources, purposes and issues
- links to more than 120 Web sites and documents containing additional FP/RH indicators
This comprehensive database aims to increase the monitoring and evaluation capacity, skills and knowledge of those who plan, implement, monitor and evaluate FP/RH programs worldwide.
Since the database is a tool that is dynamic in nature, indicators and narratives are revised as research advances and programmatic priorities adapt to changing environments.
We look forward to hearing about your experience using and adapting this resource. Please send us your feedback from the field!
