Standard Indicators for Monitoring and Evaluation of COVID-19 Vaccine after Introducing in Thailand
Keywords:Indicators, Monitoring and Evaluation, COVID-19 Vaccine, Thailand
This study aimed to develop a monitoring and evaluation (M&E) framework and relevant indicators to monitor and evaluate the implementation progress of the COVID-19 vaccine policy during the post-vaccination period in Thailand. A scoping review, a pre-meeting survey, and a stakeholder consultation meeting were conducted. The study finding proposed an M&E framework to support the COVID-19 vaccine policy during the implementation process consisting of three main pillars: 1) coverage indicators; 2) operational indicators; and 3) clinical and other indicators. Each pillar included 9 sub-topics for a total of 34 standard indicators. These indicators can be integrated and contextualized into the existing monitoring and evaluation framework of relevant organizations in different settings and levels of assessment. In addition, the study finding offers guidance for monitoring and evaluating other diseases in the future.
