Ending the neglect to attain the Sustainable Development Goals: a framework for monitoring and evaluating progress of the road map for neglected tropical diseases 2021–2030 is a companion document to the road map for neglected tropical diseases 2021−2030. It aims to provide guidance on mainstreaming the monitoring and evaluation of neglected tropical diseases within health information systems and emphasizes that monitoring and evaluation are integral components of interventions against neglected tropical diseases. The framework presents a set of standardized indicators that will enable comparability and greater accountability among stakeholders, starting at country level.
The framework aligns with WHO’s vision of strengthening national information systems and contributes to building a world health data hub at the global level. It concludes with a section on looking forward, identifying gaps and research needs for strengthening monitoring and evaluation further. The document is therefore considered to be a living one, to be improved further as experience is gained from the application of these principles in field conditions.
