7.1 Objectives

Activities are monitored to ensure that operations run smoothly, to measure the results and to identify any problems so that they can be resolved. Monitoring is done from the start of the outbreak to the end, either weekly (epidemiological surveillance and patient care) or daily (vaccination).

The information needed to calculate the indicators are routinely collected and analysed at the district level (vaccination coverage, vaccine utilisation rate, availability of treatments, etc.). The results of the analysis guide actions in the field.
