How to measure "success" in training?

With the emphasis on 'competency-based' training, how do you measure success? Particularly with the complex responsibilities of graduates of public health management or field epidemiology training programs, what do you measure that can inform your program's direction? Process indicators abound: number of graduates, costs per student, stacks of materials that have been produced. But does it have an impact? This is a challenge for almost any job, in hundreds of industries throughout the world.

Influenza Sentinel Surveillance System Evaluation and Data Analysis – Nigeria, 2009-2010

Background: Influenza is an epidemic prone disease affecting mainly children and elderly people, causing considerable morbidity and mortality. In 2007 a human case of avian influenza was identified in Nigeria leading to establishment of a sentinel surveillance system in four sites for influenza-like illnesses (ILI) and severe acute respiratory infections (SARI) and a National Influenza Reference Laboratory for influenza virus detection. We evaluated the system and analyzed surveillance data to assess the pattern of influenza in Nigeria.

Evaluation of Laboratory Component of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Surveillance - Nigeria, 2006 to 2009

Background: In 2006, Nigeria reported Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) in poultry. In 2007, the first human case was detected linked to poultry from a Live Bird Market (LBM). The West and Central African Regional Laboratory for Avian Influenza in Nigeria is responsible for investigating specimens from birds meeting the case definition of HPAI (passive surveillance) and for specimens collected routinely from LBMs and high risk areas (active HPAI surveillance).

Evaluation of Seasonal Influenza Surveillance System, Ghana, 2010

Background: Seasonal Influenza (flu) is a contagious acute respiratory disease caused by influenza type A and B viruses. Globally, annual attack rate ranges from 5% to 30% with 250,000 to 500,000 million deaths. Data on African countries is scanty and underreported. In Ghana, the influenza sentinel surveillance was commenced in 2007 to collect and characterize circulating influenza viruses. We evaluated this surveillance system to determine whether it is meeting set objectives and assessed its attributes.
