Monitoring, Evaluation, Research and Learning

We use insight and data to drive informed decisions and impact that lasts

Monitoring, Evaluation, Research and Learning (MERL) are vital for solving complex problems and making a lasting impact. At Options, we collect, analyse, synthesise, and package robust and context-specific evidence. Alongside our partners, we use this data to drive sector-wide learning, to improve decision-making and accountability in health systems and to deliver flexible programmes. Our MERL is inclusive; we ensure every voice is heard and represented.

We work with partners to:

  • Conduct quality evaluations and research that dives beneath the surface to unravel the complexities of real-world problems.
  • Use real-time data to make sure we achieve impact amid ever-changing circumstances.
  • Ensure every voice is heard using inclusive methodologies that value and amplify all individuals.
  • Build strong health management information systems that support our partners to take evidence-based action.
  • Equip civil society with the tools to harness the power of data to drive change.
