Description of group:
The Monitoring and Evaluation Reference Group (MERG) advises on all matters relating to monitoring and evaluation of international, regional, and national initiatives, providing technical advice on state-of-the-art approaches to monitoring and evaluation of malaria programs.
The MERG develops and provides technical guidance on appropriate indicators, data collection methods, analytic strategies, and dissemination of recommendations. It identifies critical technical questions arising from monitoring and evaluation and provides technical feedback. It also develops and maintains consensus around monitoring and evaluation strategies and recommends strategies for addressing the needs for capacity building at all levels.
