This guide is intended to encourage the use of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) to support effective and evidence-based national highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) programs. The development of an M&E framework is a critical component for monitoring progress in the prevention and control of HPAI and the reduction of the risk of an influenza pandemic. The constantly changing nature of these diseases often hampers effective strategic planning and program development. However, as countries respond to an increasing geographic spread of HPAI, the early development of a comprehensive M&E framework provides programs with standard measures to monitor progress at national, regional, and global levels. In this spirit, a broad-based group of stakeholders came together to develop this guide.
