Overview

To monitor and evaluate the Global Health Sector Strategy (GHSS) on viral hepatitis, the World Health Organization (WHO) proposes a monitoring and evaluation framework. This framework should facilitate collection and analysis of standardized data with a balance between the need to remain parsimonious and obtain the minimum information required.

This framework aims to:

  • guide monitoring of the response nationally and globally;
  • reduce excessive data collection and/or reporting requirements;
  • enhance the availability and quality of data; and
  • improve transparency and accountability.
