Routine Health Outcome Monitoring Using Lot Quality Assurance Sampling

Lot Quality Assurance Sampling (LQAS) is a relatively rapid and inexpensive approach to data collection for monitoring and evaluation purposes. It can be used to empower program managers to assess program performance, enabling them to determine whether program objectives and targets have been achieved within a specific unit of interest. Data was collected in Lofa County, Liberia in March of 2013 on five health indicators as part of a capacity building exercise with the Ministry of Health. Results are calculated for each indicator at both the Supervision Area level (Supervision Areas are associated with Health Districts) to determine whether the Supervision Area met or did not meet the county target, and at the county level to determine the weighted average coverage.
