We invite you to join the ”Creating Enabling Environments for Monitoring and Evaluation (CEEME)” community of practice for a 4-day virtual seminar on the subject of mainstreaming M&E from May 12 – 15, 2014. This seminar is provided free of charge with funding from USAID through the MEASURE Evaluation Project Phase III and is targeted to anyone interested in how M&E can be integrated throughout your organization.
“Mainstreaming” M&E means expanding ownership of M&E policies, processes, and procedures associated with health data throughout an organization for the purpose of improving health outcomes. We will explore the roles and responsibilities of all staff members, regardless of their official function, relative to data collection, reporting, analysis, and use – both their engagement in the M&E process and how they can create an enabling environment for others.
The seminar facilitators and moderators are Susan Post and Scott Mckeown
Please scroll down the page to see and read relevant documents and get ready to participate in daily discussion. At the end of every day we will post a summary of daily discussion.
1. Identify and define the roles of staff with diverse functions (M&E and non-M&E at all levels) throughout the project life cycle and, more specifically, during the implementation of programs and projects in the provision of health care services.
2. Determine what organizational support the staff needs to enable them to be successful in these roles.
3. Apply leadership and management practices to support themselves and their teams in mainstreaming M&E throughout the system.
4. Articulate a plan for promoting the mainstreaming of M&E throughout their organization.
Content and resources will be provided each day of the program along with discussion questions. Participants will respond to the questions on the website and the facilitators will provide comments on and summarize the responses in a daily “newsletter.”

Data Evaluation and use it for action in grass root level (PHC Level)
CEEME is a kind of knowledge boost
Hi Abdullahi. When we achieve mainstreaming of M&E, the end result is to actually use the information – at the grass roots level, all the way up to the national level, each level according to its needs.
