This case study provides several examples of data demand and information use (DDIU or DDU) interventions designed to improve the use of information for evidence-based decision-making in health service delivery. Data and information from a 2004 Kenya Service Provision Assessment (SPA) survey were used for planning purposes, improving health facilities, and advocating for more resources. Dissemination activities for the SPA findings, funded by the U.S. President’s Plan for AIDS Relief, included workshops targeting hospital administrators. Following a presentation at Kenyatta Hospital, other hospitals requested access to the survey findings.
