■ Treatment and immunisation activities are monitored from the start to the end of the outbreak.
■ Monitoring treatment availability on a weekly basis permits distribution strategy planning; the number of treatments distributed should be greater than the number of reported cases, and the case fatality rate should be acceptable.
■ The vaccination coverage indicator is essential to evaluating the effectiveness of the immunisation strategy.
■ The vaccine utilisation rate is an indicator of the quality of the vaccination teams’ work.
■ The intervention report should be accurate, concise and structured.
■ An evaluation of the outbreak response allows a critical look at a number of aspects (effectiveness, accessibility, responsiveness, safety, quality and resource mobilisation) and recommendations for improving future interventions.
■ Vaccine effectiveness can be measured if there is doubt about the impact of vaccination.
