M & E, Data Management & Analysis for Health Sector Programmes Course

INTRODUCTION

Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) skills are fundamental to the process of designing and implementing programs, analyzing and using data, and conducting advocacy for population and health programs.

In order to build the capacity of M&E professionals who are actively engaged in the health sector, this one week course will provide hands-on training in M&E systems and the application of M&E data to decision making in health programming. The workshop offers intensive training that will cover the fundamental concepts and tools for M&E in health programs.

Data management and analysis will be done using Ms Excel and Stata but participant can also opt for either SPSS or R.

This workshop also presents a practical guide for using a geographic information system (GIS) to integrate, visualize, and analyze geographically-referenced data extracted from key data sets to facilitate monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of HIV/AIDS and related health programs.
