DataUseNet Connects Professionals Working to Improve Use of Data

Newly created, DataUseNet, connects professionals working around the world to improve the use of data and information in informing health programs and policies.

MEASURE Evaluation has created DataUseNet to connect professionals working around the world to improve the use of data and information in informing health programs and policies. The network has been developed as a way to continue the discussions begun during the global From Data to Impact: Using Health Data for Results symposium held in Arusha, Tanzania, January 28-29, 2009. 
 
DataUseNet will continue the networking, sharing and learning with colleagues that began in Arusha through a listserv. Professionals working in monitoring and evaluation, program development and improvement, policy development, advocacy and strategic planning are encouraged to join. All health program areas are invited to participate.
