Open WHO | Neglected Tropical Diseases Monitoring and Evaluation Framework

01 Feb 2023

The monitoring and evaluating framework for progress of the road map for NTDs 2021-2030.

In course 1 and 2 you learned about the road map for neglected tropical diseases for 2021–2030 and the Sustainability framework which puts NTDs programmes on the track to sets global targets and milestones to control, eliminate or eradicate 20 diseases and disease groups. You also learned about the cross-cutting targets aligned with both WHO’s Thirteenth General Programme of Work and the Sustainable Development Goals, with strategies for achieving the targets during the next decade.

In this course, you will be introduced to the second companion document to the road map, the framework for monitoring and evaluating progress against the road map targets, also called, the M&E framework. The M&E framework aims to facilitate tracking of progress against set goals while enabling course corrections to be made whereever necessary.
