About This Program
The certificate program is intended for current master's and doctoral students at JHU planning to work in the field of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) in low- and middle-income countries.
Upon completion of the certificate program, individuals will be able to:
- Evaluate health programs from conception, planning and design through data collection, interpretation, and analysis in low-and-middle-income settings;
- Create impact models for health programs that reflect program assumptions and the available evidence on intervention effectiveness;
- Critically evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of various evaluation designs for a given health program;
- Identify threats to internal and external validity in program evaluation, and develop a plan to mitigate or document these threats;
- Design, implement and manage data collection activities to measure program inputs, processes, outputs, outcomes, and impacts in low and middle-income settings;
- Critically assess the quality of existing data on program inputs, processes, outputs, outcomes and impacts, and determine whether these data can be used in the evaluation of a health program in low-and middle-income settings; and
- Analyze, interpret and use program evaluation data to improve program implementation.
This certificate program is only open to individuals who are currently matriculated in a graduate degree program in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health or other schools at the Johns Hopkins University.
