In the public health sector, the purpose of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) is to know whether the intended results are being achieved as planned in the national health action plan, and whether public health interventions are making positive contributions towards improving people’s health. For the 2-1-22 regional NCD programme, M&E frameworks are an essential management tool to support the SPC commitment to accountability for results, including the efficient use of donor resources, and the effectiveness of lifestyle interventions.  The following guidelines for this were prepared by SPC's Healthy Pacific Lifestyle M&E Officer Greg Keeble.Monitoring and Evaluation Monitoring and Evaluation 86.06 Kb

As a condition of receiving 2-1-22 assistance, countries are required to provide information on the impact of their activities on trends in NCDs and associated risk factors. These figures show mortality, morbidity, NCD incidence and risk factor prevalence.

Pacific Island countries and territories are conducting surveillance surveys (STEPS) that provide national indicators on the prevalence of NCD risk factors. When combined, these figures provide scientific, comparable statistical information on the burden and trends of non-communicable disease in the Pacific region.

The following STEPS surveys have been conducted:

Kiribati: http://www.who.int/chp/steps/kiribati_STEPS_report_2004-6.pdf

American Samoa: http://www.who.int/chp/steps/Printed_STEPS_Report_American_Samoa.pdf

Fiji: http://www.who.int/chp/steps/FijiSTEPSReport.pdf

Micronesia: http://www.who.int/chp/steps/STEPS_Report_Micronesia.pdf

Nauru: http://www.who.int/chp/steps/Printed_STEPS_Report_Nauru.pdf

Tokelau: http://www.who.int/entity/chp/steps/STEPS_Report_Tokelau.pdf  

Solomon Islands: http://www.who.int/chp/steps/2006_Solomon_Islands_STEPS_Report.pdf  

Cook Islands and Marshall Islands STEPS reports: online link yet to be provided.

The M&E framework therefore enables tracking of the implementation plan towards its strategic goals and objectives. Comprehensive information will be gathered on the prevalence of risk factors in the community and on the incidence of chronic diseases as patients present themselves at clinics and hospitals.

The key stakeholders in the M&E exercise are the Departments/Ministries of Health of Pacific Island countries and territories, donor agencies (AusAID/NZAID) and implementation agencies (SPC and WHO). These agencies will use the monitoring information to assess the effectiveness of the 2-1-22 regional strategy.
