"This toolkit aims to ensure that countries are able to measure, report, and use good quality health and health-related information in a manner that meets both donor and country needs. It is particularly important for national program implementers and managers to have access to the quality information they need to make adjustments and programmatic and technical decisions. Existing M&E guidelines and materials have been developed through the collaborative work of many partnership constituents such as UNAIDS, WHO, UNICEF, bilateral agencies and NGOs and global disease partnerships such as HIV/AIDS 3 by 5, StopTB and Roll Back Malaria. Developed with the support of international funders and M&E experts, the purpose of this toolkit is to gather a selection of standard indicators and best practice in M&E, by applying a common M&E framework for the three diseases and providing users with references to key materials and resources. Although labeled as a monitoring and evaluation toolkit, this document will focus mainly on the monitoring component and high level reporting of a restricted set of measures of progress. Indicators for enabling environments are presented in an attempt to address each disease within a broader context. However, most indicators are focused on the health sector. This toolkit aims to assist countries in the following: Formulation of a participatory national M&E strategy by providing an overview of key issues to consider; Design of sustainable M&E systems that can be used to report on results and impact during the implementation stages of scaled up programs; Implementation and quality control of M&E systems and reporting of progress; and Evaluation, review and improvement of M&E systems over time as the scale up of interventions to reduce morbidity and mortality associated with HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria occurs."
