Indicators

Global cluster Code Sub-domain Title Description / Rationale
Health H-A.9a H1 General clinical services & essential trauma care Number and Percentage of non functional health facilities

Indicator of the consequence of the crisis on the availability of the health services 

Health H-A.9b H1 General clinical services & essential trauma care Number and Percentage of health facilities supported by humanitarian organisations

Indicator of support by health cluster partners beside MoH to the health system; in very disrupted health system can be a proxy for functional health facilities/services as non-supported health facilities have stopped functioning

Health H-C.1 H1 General clinical services & essential trauma care Number of outpatient consultations per person per year (attendance rate or consultation rate)

Proxy indicator for accessibility and utilization of health services that may reflect the quality of services. It does not measure the coverage of this service, but the average number of visits in a defined population.

Health H-C.2 H1 General clinical services & essential trauma care Number of consultations per clinician per day

Measure for the workload and proxy indicator of the quality of care.

Health H-C.3 H5 Non communicable diseases and mental health, H6 Environmental Health Coverage of measles vaccination (%)

Measles coverage refers to the percentage of children who have received at least one dose of measles-containing vaccine in a given year. This indicator is used for estimating the vaccine coverage of the total EPI strategy. To avoid overestimation, measles vaccination coverage is often used as a proxy since it is usually lower than DPT3 coverage.

Health H-C.4 H2 Child health coverage of DTP3 in < 1 year old (%)

Indicators used for estimating the vaccine coverage of the total EPI strategy. To avoid overestimation, measles vaccination coverage is often used as a proxy since it is usually lower than DTP3 coverage.

Health H-C.5 H4.2 Maternal and newborn care Percentage of births assisted by a skilled attendant

Proxy measure for the utilization rate of obstetrics services in health facilities and in communities where Village-Trained Midwives are operating. It is a measure of a health system?s ability to provide adequate care for pregnant women during labour and delivery.

Health H-C.6 H4.2 Maternal and newborn care Percentage of deliveries by caesarean section

The proportion of all deliveries by caesarean section in a geographical area is a measure of access to and use of a common obstetric interventions for averting maternal and neonatal deaths and for preventing complications such as obstetric fistula. Of all the procedures used to treat major obstetric complications, caesarean section is one of the commonest, and reporting is relatively reliable.

Health H-R.1 H3 Communicable diseases, H5 Non communicable diseases and mental health Incidence for selected diseases relevant to the local context

Useful measure of the burden of diseases and detect outbreaks. The list of diseases is context specific and can include communicable and non-communicable diseases.

Health H-R.3 H3 Communicable diseases, H5 Non communicable diseases and mental health Case Fatality Ratio (CFR) for most common diseases

Probability of dying as a result of a given disease. Is a result of a mixture of disease severity and quality of health care.
