Monitoring, Evaluating, and Applying Findings

Monitoring, Evaluating, and Applying Findings Icon

Monitoring and evaluation offer essential feedback loops to answer questions such as “Has the intervention been delivered as intended? Are there barriers to implementation? Is the intervention achieving desired outcomes?”. Through structured processes, agencies can gather and use data to inform decision-making about spreading, adjusting, or discontinuing a program or set of practices.
