MWG Members Portal

The Metrics Working Group (MWG), which was previously hosted by the University of California, San Francisco, has moved to Metrics for Management. The MWG is comprised of implementing and donor agencies and academic and research institutions. The working group collaborates to identify, test, and advocate for robust performance metrics across the six shared goals of the members. They identify, test, and advocate for these performance metrics in the areas of health impact, equity, cost-effectiveness, quality, additionality, and sustainability.


Health Impact

Is population health being improved?



Are the poor or vulnerable receiving health services under the program?


Cost Effectiveness

Is health impact being achieved in an economical manner?



Is the program capturing additional users in a health market?



Are participating providers adhering to clinical standards?



Is the program achieving financial, programmatic, and operational goals?

This group was first formed in 2009. By 2011, it had gained significant traction and included members from dozens of agencies worldwide. Currently, the Group includes more than 30 representatives from 15 agencies, and receives input periodically from a Community of Interest, which includes 10 representatives from 6 agencies.

Purpose of the Group

The MWG works towards to the goal of standardizing, systematizing (and simplifying, where possible) metrics for performance in key areas for health service programs.

The MWG not only advocates for the adoption of the six standardized metrics, it also develops technical assistance materials to support programs to put the metrics into practice.

Structure and coordinating mechanism

The MWG meets via telephone once a month; live meetings are convened once a year. Metrics for Management serves as the Secretariat.

Chairs: Kim Longfield, Population Services International & Dominic Montagu, UCSF & M4M

Recruitment and selection process

There is no formal policy on recruitment or selection. All individuals with an active interest in one of the six identified performance measures for health, and the time to commit to monthly consultations and annual meetings, are welcome. Contact us to learn more.
