Training for Data Collectors on PEPFAR Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting Essential Survey Indicators: Facilitator’s Guide

MEASURE Evaluation

As part of its monitoring, evaluation, and reporting (MER) guidance, the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) launched a set of essential indicators for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) programs. These outcome indicators reflect internationally accepted developmental milestones and collectively measure holistic well-being for children and their families over time. Indicators track the ways OVC programs gain from and contribute to the broader HIV and child protection response. These outcome indicators are designated as “essential survey indicators,” meaning that PEPFAR requires countries to collect these indicators biennially (every two years). These outcome data will support improved, evidence-informed strategic portfolio development, programming, and resource allocation decisions both at the country level and the headquarters level.

This manual has been created to support training specifically for collecting the MER essential survey indicators through outcomes monitoring. Access the accompanying PowerPoint presentations.
