Indicators for Monitoring Health Systems Strengthening Programs

While there are generally accepted measures of health systems performance, there is not a single readily-available resource of health systems strengthening (HSS) indicators measured at the program level for reference when monitoring and reporting on specific HSS interventions or programs.

Experts from the HFG, CapacityPlus, and Leadership, Management & Governance (LMG) projects developed the Monitoring Health Systems Strengthening Programs: Compendium of Indicators to fill this need. Covering three of the health system building blocks as defined by the World Health Organization—health financing, human resources for health, and leadership and governance—the compendium provides a wide-ranging menu of indicators to be used by USAID, implementing partners, and other organizations when preparing monitoring and evaluation (M&E) plans for HSS programs.
