There is an increasing realisation that monitoring the outcomes of eye health programmes and clinical interventions is critical to improving quality. While a standard vocabulary (presenting visual acuity, cataract surgical rate, etc.) has been developed and come into wide use for cataract programme monitoring, much progress remains to be made in the evaluation of programmes on glaucoma, trachoma, refractive error and other conditions.
This symposium touched on strategies to improve monitoring for a variety of different programmes, while also discussing how large organisations such as INDGOs, governments and hospitals can develop Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) protocols and improve their capacity for monitoring and evaluation.
