How Do We Know if a Program Made a Difference? A Guide to Statistical Methods for Program Impact Evaluation
This manual provides an overview of core statistical and econometric methods for program impact evaluation and, more generally, causal modelling.

Health Systems Strengthening - M&E and Learning
This package of health systems strengthening (HSS) resources provides advice and direction on how to set up monitoring, evaluation, and learning 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. 

Evaluating Family Planning Programs with Adaptations for Reproductive Health

Monitoring and Evaluation Capacity Assessment Toolkit

Efforts to strengthen health information systems (HIS) must focus on improved health program monitoring and evaluation. To help meet this need, MEASURE Evaluation, the flagship M&E and HIS strengthening project of the United States Agency for International Development, and its Kenya associate award, MEASURE Evaluation PIMA, have developed a process and toolkit to conduct a standard baseline assessment of M&E capacity: the Monitoring and Evaluation Capacity Assessment Toolkit (MECAT).
