Strengthening Health Information Systems in Nigeria—Building an OVC Information System Abstract:

MEASURE Evaluation, which is funded by the United States Agency for International Development, has worked with the Nigeria Federal Ministry of Women’s Affairs and Social Development from 2013–2019 to improve the availability of high-quality data to support decision making at all levels of the health system. To this end, MEASURE Evaluation has supported the development of a directory of orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) service providers and built capacity to use OVC data collection tools for the National OVC Management Information System (NOMIS). The coordinated health information system (HIS) strengthening activities that this work involved
can be mapped across MEASURE Evaluation’s Health Information System Strengthening Model.

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 through the development of NOMIS.
