Zanzibar: HIS Indicators

Zanzibar.png

MEASURE Evaluation is compiling the country profiles on this site for 21 health information system (HIS) indicators. As of January 2017, we had located the following indicators for Zanzibar. Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous region within the United Republic of Tanzania, and it maintains its own government and is directly responsible for all nonunion affairs, including health services. Indicator definitions can be found here: http://www.measureevaluation.org/his-strengthening-resource-center/health-information-systems-his-country-profile-indicators

Please check back in this Resource Center as we continue to expand the indicators of HIS strengthening, or click here to provide comments and suggestions.
