Monitoring Visit Template
We support lots of clients to improve their monitoring processes. A monitoring visit should be a two way conversation between you and the community/facility. It’s useful to have a standardised tool for your visit, to provide focus and ensure you can compare locations. We’ve put together a very simple observation template you can adapt when visiting a community or health facility. If you need help developing other tools, contact us.
