M&E systems require a combination of routine (monitoring) and periodic (evaluation) documentation, analysis, reporting and visualization of results.Documentation, analysis, reporting and visualization of results is guided by prior agreed Key performance Indicators (KPIs) – that are extracted from the National Strategic Plan (UNHLS). KPIs – identified through an approach that is chosen by either the – institution/organization or the expert/consultant. Opting to use AverdisDonabedian – Systems wide Approach. Each of the 13 strategic units and its operational sub units making up UNHLS (including M&E) should develop, adopt and share their set KPIS as stipulated in the NSP (example in Table 1.0 below) that will measure their performance as a contribution to the overall performance of UNHLS.

UNHLS Management should Identify/nominate M&E Focal Points/persons for each unit/sub unit( if necessary), provide the tools, Scope of Work and Terms of Reference, then M&E Technical Support will coordinate these resources into a Robust M&E system for UNHLS

  • National Lab Services

How many Labs do meet the established Test menu-Hub versus All Laboratory across the country(Bazeeyo, Kiwanuka Report Dec 2016 on Lab services in Uganda is alluding to dichotomy in Lab performance)


  • Central M&E Focus

Test Volumes  :How many Lab tests do all labs in Uganda do? (When disaggregated by technique/test type this informs logistics, QA, Management and SMC for planning, policy and management purposes)

Reporting Rates:  -KPI for UNHLS, DHI and SMC to monitor performance

  • How many Hubs submit complete reports on –Monthly, Quarterly, Annual
  • How many Labs submit complete HMIS  105 reports on Monthly, Quarterly, Annual basis
