Integrating Data Systems in Côte d’Ivoire Will Improve Health System Performance Abstract:

In Côte d’Ivoire in 2004, the national health strategic plan was not aligned to a monitoring and evaluation framework; health providers could not reliably track clients from one service to another; health districts could not measure disease trends; and national policy makers could not know health service quality or coverage.

In part, this situation was caused by non-standardized data collection tools and the lack of checks on data quality and completeness. It was also a result of fragmented data management systems that served one aspect of healthcare but not the full spectrum of health services.

This brief outlines the work of MEASURE Evaluation, funded by the United States Agency for International Development and the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, to help Côte d’Ivoire address these health data needs. Côte d’Ivoire now has a national health data management system—DHIS 2—deployed and used nationwide and an electronic logistics management and supply chain system used by clients of the new public health pharmacy.
