Document 4: Monitoring & Evaluation toolkit: HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria

To support the monitoring and evaluation sections a toolkit for the three diseases has been developed by a wide range of institutions. The purpose of the toolkit is to provide in one place the “essentials” of agreed upon best practice in M & E, by applying a common framework for the three diseases and providing users with references to key materials and resources. You will find descriptions of the major indicators, how they fit into general monitoring and evaluation, and frequently asked questions and answers. It is the first time this framework has been developed for the three diseases, so the toolkit is in draft and will be developed with feedback over time.
