Monitoring and Evaluation in Global Health



Testimonials from Past Course Participants

“I wish I had done this course much earlier in my programme work! I recommend the course as a must for all staff working in programme/projects.”

“I have really learnt a lot more about practical applications of M&E in public health programmes that are crucial to my work. All the lecture methods were very easy to use, and the concepts and explanations were simple and easy to understand.”

“I am very happy with the experience I have gone throughout the whole course. I never thought this course would be as detailed and well-structured like this. You have done a good job and put in so much work. Your expertise cannot be compared to local sources here, you have set up a very good learning platform that makes it easier for participants or students to learn. Your lecturer videos, transcripts and audios are very clear and easy to follow. The communication platform very efficient and effective. I am happy to be among the intellectuals that took part in this course M&E in global health. Thank you, University of Washington.”

Want to harness the power of data to improve your global health program?  Are you interested in learning to systematically collect and analyze data and apply it to the real world? 

Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) is a critical element of any successful health program. M&E enables programs to track and demonstrate progress, as well as diagnose programs to enable better results. Participants who complete this course come away with improved understanding of the necessary tools to develop and implement M&E frameworks for their global health programs.

Course topics include M&E models and frameworks, indicators, design and deployment of M&E plans, quantitative and qualitative data collection, data verification methods, M&E assessment designs, and ethical considerations.  By the end of this course, participants will have the tools to develop an M&E framework tailored to the needs of their particular health program and the knowledge to apply it rigorously in field settings.


Participants engage in video lectures, case studies, readings, discussion forums, quizzes, and practical assignments. This is a graduate-level course taught in English. 

You can participate in this course as an independent participant or as part of a site with 5 or more people. Participating as a site group provides a forum for discussing course concepts and applying them to local context and customs. If you are participating independently, the online discussion boards provide a forum for these types of discussion. 


The course is aimed toward public health and healthcare professionals. To be admitted to the course you must have a Bachelor’s-level degree or equivalent experience in a health-related field. While this is a foundational level course, it will be very technically focused. Successful participants should be familiar with technical terms within this field. You'll also be more successful with an advanced level of English language fluency, as writing assignments are required.
