Assessing the Capacity of Monitoring and Evaluation and Health Information Systems: Guidance Abstract:

The purpose of this document is to present best practices for assessing capacity systematically and using the assessment results to develop a capacity building plan (CBP) to strengthen HIS and M&E systems. The document provides information that:

  • Helps you decide whether a formal capacity assessment is appropriate for your activity
  • Offers strategies if you are struggling with stakeholder buy‐in
  • Identifies options and alternatives for assessing capacity if you have stakeholder buy‐in but constrained resources
  • Presents considerations for how the formal capacity assessment results or other documented information about capacity may be used for planning your capacity building interventions and for monitoring and tracking progress
  • Offers options for adapting or hybridizing tools if no existing tool fits your needs
  • Outlines ways that assessing and documenting M&E‐related capacity may be used to inform project planning, to provide feedback to donors and other stakeholders, and to report, including through the development of a CBP
