Abstract

In 2006, IntraHealth International, as implementers of the USAID-funded Capacity Project, developed and launched the Human Resources for Health (HRH) Global Resource Center (GRC), www.hrhresourcecenter.org, a digital library committed to reducing access barriers in developing countries to the best HRH resources available. Since the launch, the GRC has transformed in response to usage, feedback, and changes in the field of HRH. Data gathered from monitoring and evaluating the GRC has driven many of these modifications. This article shares IntraHealth’s experiences developing, using, and refining monitoring and evaluation methods and metrics for the HRH Global Resource Center.
