Background
Monitoring and evaluation is an important component of assessment of public
health intervention programmes. This assessment is essentially done to
understand whether the key activities of the programme or project are being
carried out as planned while also providing information on whether these key
activities lead to the desired results. Monitoring and Evaluation helps us to
manage the resources and activities of the programme in order to enhance its
impact during the implementation stage, both short term and in the long run.
Systematic use of information and its management helps establish a clear link
between objectives and results of the programme thus enhancing the overall
quality of implementation. The relevant information obtained during
Monitoring and Evaluation can be utilized by practising managers to further
reorient the programme or introduce additional changes while also helping
them in their future course of planning for the programme.
The programme through intensive training covers fundamental aspects of
Monitoring and Evaluation, utilization of tools and lays emphasis on design and
implementation of effective management information systems for health
