Strengthening Health Information Systems in Côte d'Ivoire Abstract:

MEASURE Evaluation, which is funded by the United States Agency for International Development, has been working in Côte d’Ivoire to support health information system (HIS) strengthening and improve the availability and use of high-quality health data. Central to this work are efforts to upgrade and make interoperable several vertical subsystems that manage the country’s patient-level HIV data (SIGDEP 2), data for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC), data from the electronic logistics management system, and routine health data in DHIS 2. This work with the Ministry of Health and the National OVC Program strengthens elements of the HIS identified in MEASURE Evaluation’s Health Information System Strengthening Model (HISSM).

The graphic below superimposes on the HISSM descriptions of MEASURE Evaluation’s activities in the enabling environment and information generation areas to support harmonization of information needs and facilitate better data sharing across entities. By displaying key interventions across the model, 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 beneath the graphic lists additional MEASURE Evaluation activities that support HIS strengthening. Because of these interventions, we expect the quality of the data collected to improve and the use of HIS data to generate health indicators, statistics, and trends for data-informed decision making to increase.
