Health Systems Strengthening – A Compendium of Indicators Abstract:

Health Systems Strengthening: Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning Guide (Aqil, Silvestre, & Hotchkiss, 2017)—part of a package of health systems strengthening [HSS] resources, along with this compendium and one other document—provides advice and direction on how to set up monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) processes. These processes track progress in HSS, generate evidence of the effectiveness of HSS interventions, and use that evidence for continuous learning and better programming. Indicators are an important part of MEL processes, and this compendium presents the wide array of indicators that can be used to monitor progress and generate evidence for HSS. They support USAID’s goals of ending preventable child and maternal deaths (EPCMD) and an AIDS-free generation (AFG goals). The indicators come from many diverse sources and were collected in conjunction with a literature review of M&E frameworks for HSS: Health Systems Strengthening: A Literature Review (Diana, Yeager, & Hotchkiss, 2017): the third document in this package of resources.

The compendium is organized in three sections. First, it provides introduction to indicators, grouping based on health system functions, selection considerations, and data sources. Second, an overview HSS indicators is provided. Lastly, tables of indicators based on core health system functions are presented.
