A Guide for Monitoring and Evaluating Child Health Programs Abstract:

Large-scale international efforts are currently being made to improve the health of infants and young children in several areas: the Millennium Development Goals, Roll Back Malaria, the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, and others. This guide intends to help these efforts succeed by providing information about effectively monitoring and evaluating these efforts. The specific objectives of this guide are to: compile indicators judged to be most useful for monitoring and evaluating child health programs; to encourage the consistent use of standardized definitions of indicators and terminology across the child health community; to serve as a central source of obtaining measures of process and output that can be reasonable linked to program activities; and to promote the monitoring and evaluation of child health programs by making indicators better known and easier to use.
