Resource: Reproductive Health Indicators Database
This announcement about a very useful resource came through on SAMEA talk earlier this week.
MEASURE Evaluation Population and Reproductive Health (PRH) project launches new Family Planning/Reproductive Health Indicators Database
The Family Planning/Reproductive Health Database is an updated version of the popular two-volume Compendium of Indicators for Evaluating Reproductive Health Programs (MEASURE Evaluation, 2002).
New features include:
* a menu of the most widely used indicators for evaluating family planning/reproductive health (FP/RH) programs in developing countries
* 35 technical areas with over 420 key FP/RH indicators, including definitions, data requirements, data sources, purposes and issues
* links to more than 120 Web sites and documents containing additional FP/RH indicators
This comprehensive database aims to increase the monitoring and evaluation capacity, skills and knowledge of those who plan, implement, monitor and evaluate FP/RH programs worldwide. The database is dynamic in nature, allowing indicators and narratives to be revised as research advances and programmatic priorities adapt to changing environments.
