MER 2.0 Indicator Reference Guide

Shayna Padovano -

This article contains the MER 2.0 Indicator Reference Guide V2.2, Updated Release for January 2018.

+++

The objectives of the MER guidance document are to streamline and prioritize indicators for PEPFAR programs. As the PEPFAR MER Indicators were being updated the following was taken into consideration:

  • Reduction of indicators to focus program monitoring on what matters most for epidemic control;
  • Standardization of age, sex, and key population disaggregations across the prevention and clinical cascades to monitor which populations are being reached with high quality evidence-based services, and to identify which populations are not being reach;
  • Alignment of indicators with multilaterals and partner governments to avoid duplication of data collection where possible, and to focus on improved data and programmatic quality;
  • Input from community stakeholders, technical experts, implementing partners, and PEPFAR field staff;
  • Alignment with other PEPFAR data streams such as site improvement through monitoring systems (SIMS), financial monitoring, and the sustainability index (SID).
