I welcome you to the Makerere University School of Public Health-Monitoring and Evaluation Technical Assistance (MAKSPH METS) Program website!
In the last decade the push for governments, institutions and other public organisations to be more efficient and effective has gained momentum. As a result governments and other public institutions are adopting Result based management principles. This requires the presence of effective M&E systems that will be the hallmark for tracking results from policies, programs/projects and other interventions where public funds are used. Where M&E is part and partial in the design and implementation of policies/programs and other interventions, accountability is enhanced and better results are achieved.
The Makerere University School of Public Health being a leader in capacity building for government institutions especially the health sector has partnered with the Ministry of Health and the University of California San Francisco to implement a five year program with the goal of strengthening capacities of district health teams to strengthen M&E systems, district led programming, case based surveillance of HIV and Health Management Information systems. This program is funded by the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
I hope that the materials and resources availed through this website will provide a rich information avenue as ?we build for the future?.
