Health Management Information Systems, Data Quality and Data Use

MEASURE Evaluation–Tanzania (MEval–TZ) facilitates data demand and use and strengthens data quality at both national and subnational levels for HIV and malaria.

MEASURE Evaluation–Tanzania (MEval–TZ) facilitates data demand and use and strengthens data quality at both national and subnational levels for HIV and malaria.

The project conducts data quality and data use assessments and develops associated strengthening plans. These plans incorporate data and performance review meetings, coinciding with quarterly reporting or the annual planning cycle, with results reported through the DHIS 2 software platform to track performance against targets.

The project focuses efforts on select regional and council health management teams (R/CHMTs) as the structures for supportive supervision, enforcing standards, and promoting and sustaining progress. R/CHMTS are government employees who supervise, monitor, and coordinate health service delivery. The team works with both HIV and malaria managers of the R/CHMT teams.

An overarching goal is to improve the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems for social service programs while enhancing local capacity to sustain and use these systems. To this end, the project supports the Health Management Information System (HMIS) Unit of the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly, and Children to strengthen the HMIS by institutionalizing the use of DHIS 2 through training and capacity building at the national, regional, and district levels.
