Overview: Effective reporting that is tailored to the appropriate audience can elevate the impact of health inequality monitoring. Reporting, as presented in this course, reflects conclusions derived from health inequality data analysis. In consideration of the analysis results, it begins by formulating a clear purpose and identifying the corresponding target audience. With these in mind, relevant technical content is defined, and appropriate tools are selected for its presentation.
This course provides an in-depth exploration of effective reporting practices for health inequality monitoring, including technical considerations for presenting disaggregated data and summary measures of inequality. The target audience for this course is monitoring and evaluation officers, though the course is suitable for anyone with a general interest in monitoring inequality or reporting health data.
This course is part of the Health Inequality Monitoring Foundations series, featuring the following courses: (1) Overview, (2) Data Sources, (3) Health Data Disaggregation, (4) Summary Measures of Health Inequality and (5) Reporting.
