Strengthening Health Information Systems in Nigeria Abstract:

MEASURE Evaluation, which is funded by the United States Agency for International Development, has been working in Nigeria since 2005 to improve the availability of high-quality data to support decision making at all levels of the health system. The harmonization of various vertical, disease-specific information systems within the country has been a central focus. Much of MEASURE Evaluation’s work to support the Federal Ministry of Health’s Department of Health Planning, Research and Statistics strengthens elements of the health information system (HIS) identified in MEASURE Evaluation’s Health Information System Strengthening Model (HISSM).

This fact sheet superimposes on the HISSM depictions of MEASURE Evaluation’s activities in the enabling environment and information generation areas to support HIS performance. By displaying these key interventions across the HISSM, we see their strategic interaction, and how this combination of interventions works together to strengthen data quality and data use at all levels of the health system. The table lists additional MEASURE Evaluation activities that support HIS strengthening. As a result of these interventions, we expect to see improved quality of the data collected and increased use of HIS data to generate health indicators, statistics, and trends for data-informed decision making.
