Call for members – Technical Expert Group on Surveillance, Monitoring and Evaluation
WHO is soliciting applications from persons interested in serving on the Surveillance, Monitoring and Evaluation Technical Expert Group (SME TEG). The deadline for the submission of CVs has been extended to 26 January 2014.
Once constituted, the SME TEG will report to the Malaria Policy Advisory Committee (MPAC) and will provide advice to WHO on malaria surveillance, monitoring and evaluation at national, regional and global levels.
This includes: (a) choice of indicators for monitoring the financing, coverage, quality and impact of malaria control interventions at national level and global level; (b) strategies for obtaining, synthesizing and disseminating information on the indicators globally, including modelled estimates of intervention coverage and disease burden; (c) guidance that WHO provides on (i) surveillance of infections, cases and deaths and the use of the data in decision-making, (ii) establishing systems for monitoring programme financing and coverage, (iii) evaluating the impact of malaria interventions and programmes; (d) evaluation of the accuracy and integrity of SME data at the national, regional and global level; (e) approaches for strengthening the capacity of Member States to generate and use key information, and (f) identification of gaps in evidence and suggesting priority research areas in the field of SME.
The SME TEG is expected to work closely with the Roll Back Malaria Monitoring and Evaluation Reference Group (MERG) and be complementary to it.
