Strengthening the monitoring and evaluation of COVID-19 prevention programmes
This brief summarises lessons learned about the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of COVID-19 prevention programmes. In this brief, we describe how M&E approaches have changed during the pandemic and outline 6 ways to strengthen future programmatic learning. The lessons shared in this brief are drawn from the work of the COVID-19 Hygiene Hub. These insights emerged from:
Hundreds of informal conversations with programme implementers across 65 countries between April 2020 and May 2021.
More than 50 in-depth technical support initiatives.
More than 70 interviews with COVID-19 response organisations, donors and coordination mechanisms.
10 discussions with humanitarian organisations about common M&E challenges as part of a collaboration with the Global WASH Cluster.
This learning brief is designed to complement the COVID-19 Hygiene Hub resources on M&E and our list of external resources on this topic. This brief is primarily designed for people working within the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector and others who have been involved in COVID-19 prevention programming.
