VELASQUEZ HURTADO, José Enrique  and  RIVERA SIVIRICHI, Rosmery Arletty. Health surveys: essentials tools in the monitoring and evaluation of the budgetary programs. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2017, vol.34, n.3, pp.512-520. ISSN 1726-4634.

This article analyzes the use of health surveys in the monitoring and evaluation of the Budgetary Programs. From its beginnings in 2008, in Peru, the Budget for Results (PpR) has meant not only a modification of the organization of the State budget, but a shift towards a perspective based on scientific evidence that prioritizes the results in the population and the necessary goods and services. National health surveys have played a relevant role, since they provide population information at the product and results level, information that has also supported the changes in the management cycle of State interventions, under a structure in which the availability of information constitutes the best input for decision making. Finally, it presents the considerations that must be taken into account for the adequate use of the information that comes from health surveys and the complementarity that it requires of other sources of information, so as to facilitate the integral approach in the monitoring and evaluation of the chain of results of budgetary programs in health. Surveys are important tools for monitoring and evaluating budget programs, their detailed knowledge allows them to improve their use in decision-making.
