Assessing the Impact of Your Work

Monitoring and evaluation of your work is essential. A thoughtful evaluation will help you understand progress against goals, document program impact and provide evidence to guide program design and implementation improvements. Monitoring and evaluating health outcomes over time will inform future outreach and partnership priorities. Resources include information on implementing careful record keeping, feedback mechanisms and reporting for ongoing quality improvements.
