There is no single number that summarises program performance. Attendance (i.e. number of current beneficiaries) is useful because it gives you an immediate caseload for immediate logistics planning. Admissions over time can help you decide future caseload and decide wether the program is responding to change in need (provided you have reasonable calendars of disease, food availability, dietary diversity, weather, labour demand, &c.). The routine monitoring statistics package with plots program exists (i.e. cured, transfered, lost / defaulted, non-cured, died) over time as a proportion of all exits. Length of stay (plotted as a histogram and calculated as a median) is useful for planning purposes and can act as a proxy for compliance. Weight gain (i.e. velocity in g/kg/day) or MUAC gain (mm / day) can be used to measure response. Coverage is a direct measure of how well a program meets needs and (with cure rate) can be used to measure effectiveness / impact. I think this is a minimum reporting package for SFP and TFP programs. There will also be a range of indicators for each program activity such as number of children screened, number of villages visited from screening / mobilisations / sensitisation, stock levels, disbursements (predicted, actual, residual), spoilage, and so-on.
