METRICS WORKING GROUP

The Metrics Working Group (MWG) is comprised of implementing, academic, research, and donor institutions. Hosted at Metrics for Management, we collaborate to identify, test, and advocate for robust performance metrics in the areas of health impact, equity, cost-effectiveness, family planning quality, additionality, and sustainability.

T

he MWG group was formed by a group of social franchise organizations in 2009. By 2011, it had gained significant traction and included members from dozens of agencies worldwide. Currently, the MWG includes more than 30 representatives from 15 agencies, and periodically receives input periodically from a cohort of advisors, 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 implementing the metrics.

Structure and coordinating mechanism

The MWG meets via telephone once every two months, and in-person meetings are convened once a year. Metrics for Management serves as the Secretariat. Chairs: Kim Longfield, Consultant & 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.
