About Metrics for Management

Metrics for Management (M4M) is a nonprofit organization, created with a vision to establish common health service delivery metrics and the tools to apply them in order to enable governments and NGOs alike to measure what matters and better serve those in need. M4M designs, promotes, and standardizes performance measures to improve health outcomes and wellbeing in low- and middle- income countries (LMICs). We work to assure accurate and relevant data is collected, that common metrics are agreed on to measure performance, and that those metrics are widely disseminated and used. By building global consensus and through rigorous research, we develop easy-to-implement, easy-to-understand, real-time performance metrics to help managers assess and improve the performance of their own program, institution, facility, or district. We also provide in-country technical assistance to assist implementers in the application, adaptation, and development of performance measures to meet local program needs. Our current projects focus on family planning, maternal, adolescent and child health, abortion, and health financing.
