Substantial resources are being directed towards increasing the effective coverage of interventions to improve population health. In order to measure an intervention's effect, we must track in a valid, reliable and comparable way, the coverage and effective coverage of the intervention. This session will look at the effective coverage of interventions - insecticide-treated bednets, ARVs, and skilled birth attendants - to illustrate the importance of measuring effective coverage and discuss some of the methods being used for this purpose. Following from the flow of financial resources to the funding and tracking of health interventions, this session will conclude by addressing the impact of these resources and interventions on key health outcomes such as those targeted by the Millennium Development Goals. It will delve into what we really know about success in global health given increased resources, and what that might tell us about how we should pursue activities in the future. It will emphasize how measurement helps us to establish an evidence-base for progress in health, and how that can be used to help improve all of our efforts, no matter what sector we are from or individual role we may play.
