3MDG Maternal, Newborn and Child Health Indicator Guidelines [2nd ed.]

Version 2, January 2016<br>The primary purpose of this document is to provide 3MDG stakeholders with some essential information on the MNCH core-indicators for 3MDG, which were derived from the <I>3MDG Logical Framework, Data Dictionary for Health Service Indicators</I> (2014 June, DoPH, MoH), <I>A Guide for Monitoring and Evaluating Child Health Programmes</I> (MEASURE Evaluation, September 2005) and <I>Monitoring Emergency Obstetric Care</I> (WHO/UNICEF/UNFPA/AMDD). Partners are strongly encouraged to integrate the MNCH indicators into their ongoing monitoring and evaluation (M&E) activities.<br> These indicators are designed to help Partners assess the current state of their activities, their progress towards achieving their targets, and contribution towards the national response. This guideline is designed to improve the quality and consistency of data collected at the township level, which will enhance the accuracy of conclusions drawn when the data are aggregated.
