  • • Collaboration to support country level efforts in Monitoring and Evaluation of iCCM programs

  • • Develop plan, tools and procedures to support countries with national iCCM programs to analyze their routine data on iCCM (e.g. develop resource on data analysis; identify skill gaps and ways to address)
  • • Review and revision of recommended iCCM indicators
  • • Develop and test approaches to address other priority measurement issues (e.g. measuring adherence to medication, etc.)
  • • Identify and share iCCM M&E resources
  • • Support Global Fund iCCM M&E

Governance and Structure

The M&E subgroup is co-chaired by Serge Raharison of MCSP/JSI and Tanya Guenther of Save the Children. The group holds quarterly meetings over the phone and schedules face-to-face meetings when opportunities arise. Two task teams were established during the first M&E sub-group meeting in October 2014 to move priority work areas forward. These are:

  1. 1. DHIS2. This task team focuses on exploring opportunities to strengthen routine monitoring for iCCM through the DHIS2 platform, which many countries have adopted or are planning to adopt as the platform for their national HMIS. This task team is co-chaired by Vikas Dwivedi (MCSP/JSI) and Nick Oliphant/Maria Muniz (UNICEF).
  1. 2. Indicators: This task team will focus on reviewing and revising the iCCM indicators based on country experience. The co-chairs are to be determined.
