About the Health Inequality Monitoring Course Series.

WHO is committed to advancing health equity around the globe. Yet, in 2020, only half of countries included disaggregated data as part of their published national health statistics reports. Health inequality monitoring provides critical evidence to determine who is being left behind, and inform equity-oriented changes to policies, programmes and practices. A new WHO eLearning course series, ‘Health Inequality Monitoring Foundations’, addresses the need for capacity strengthening in health inequality monitoring. This five-course series is delivered in a self-directed learning environment, designed to meet the immediate learning needs of users. It is primarily targeted to monitoring and evaluation officers, researchers, analysts, and others with a general interest in health data and inequality monitoring.

The Overview course gives a general introduction to the health inequality monitoring cycle and related key terminology and concepts.

The Data sources course examines the strengths, limitations and opportunities to improve common data sources for health inequality monitoring, as well as the processes of data source mapping and data linking.

The Health data disaggregation course explores how disaggregated health data are integral across the steps of monitoring, and guides learners in assessing and reporting disaggregated data.

The Summary measures of health inequality course discusses the general characteristics of simple and complex summary measures, and guides learners through the selection, calculation, interpretation and reporting of a range of measures.

The Reporting course demonstrates the components of high-quality health inequality reporting, emphasizing purpose-driven, audience-centred, and technically rigorous approaches.
