Monitoring and evaluation of collaborative TB/HIV activities

Export Indicator

Presence of an integrated national M&E system for collaborative TB/HIV activities that informs annual NTP and NACP planning cycles and their mid-term (3–5-year) plans.
What it measures

This indicator aims to confirm that the information generated by the national M&E system is used to improve programme performance by feeding in to the short- and long-term planning processes of the TB and HIV/AIDS programmes

Calculation
Method of measurement

Two-part question with simple yes/no answer.
A. Routine monitoring: Evidence (gathered from annual TB, HIV and TB/HIV plans and interviews with key TB and HIV programme staff) that the annual TB/HIV monitoring report informs the annual planning process of the TB and HIV programmes.
B. Evaluation: Evidence (gathered from annual TB, HIV and TB/HIV plans and interviews with key TB and HIV programme staff) that the report from the detailed mid-term evaluation of collaborative TB/HIV activities informs the mid-term planning process of both TB and HIV programmes

Strengths and weaknesses

The information generated through programme M&E should be used to critically evaluate programme performance and improve service provision. For this to happen, reports from M&E should inform the annual and mid-term planning processes. However, this indicator will give information only on whether there is a system to ensure that the data arising from the M&E process are fed into the planning processes; it gives no indication of the quality of these data or whether they are used appropriately to improve programme performance.
