The East African Journal of Applied Health Monitoring and Evaluation is a new academic and public health journal from the Department of Health Systems Management, in the School of Public Administration and Management at Mzumbe University. The journal will accept original, high quality articles focusing on applied experiences of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) in the health sector in Africa, with a particular focus on East Africa, as well as articles based on health-related M&E experiences from outside of Africa but which will provide useful comparative lessons.
The journal will seek to involve scholars and public health practitioners from Tanzania, East Africa and beyond, with the following aims:
- To build a high quality body of knowledge around health-related M&E in the East African context.
- To contribute to a culture of peer-reviewed publication focused on applied health M&E in the East African context.
- To strengthen the drive to use data for decision making in the health sector in East Africa.
- To encourage the sharing of best practices and lessons learned in health M&E and development.
