Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are quantifiable performance measurements used to measure progress against factors that are key to EDCTP’s success. EDCTP has identified KPIs to measure the success and progress of EDCTP to 2012. The KPIs are measured across the range of EDCTP activities. These KPIs are monitored internally on a monthly basis and updated quarterly on the EDCTP website.
