Through its working groups, the Health Data Collaborative will produce numerous tools, such as data standards, measurement methods, health indicators and other resources that will support countries to collect, analyse and use more accurate and reliable health data.
Around the world, countries are faced with collecting data for numerous different donors using different methods and indicators. The tools we produce will help to harmonise those methods, easing the administrative burden on countries and ensuring they have better data, for better decisions, and better health.
We’re developing a one-stop shop for health information system standards that will include:
The declaration from more than 600 health leaders at the 2015 Summit on Measurement and Accountability for Health, describing priority actions and targets for smarter investments and stronger capacities for health data.
A standard set of 100 indicators prioritized by the global community to provide concise information on the health situation and trends, including responses at national and global levels.
The Master Facility List (MFL) Resource Package was developed to guide countries through the process of establishing or strengthening their MFL. The MFL Resource Package describes the various elements that must be in place to have a functional MFL including a governance structure; a comprehensive, up-to-date facility list; and a software platform to house and share the MFL data.
This module describes a core set of indicators for Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health (RMNCAH) that can be captured through routine health management information systems (HMIS).
Module 3: Guidance for tuberculosis programme managers. Notifications (numbers and rates).
This module provides guidance on the analysis and use of routine tuberculosis surveillance data collected at the facility level. The module reviews core facility indicators and analysis, provides suggestions for questions on data quality as well as considerations and limitations for using the data and analysis.
This exercise book has been developed by the World Health Organization, with the support of grants from Bloomberg Philanthropies Data for Health Initiative, Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and The Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation.
This module provides guidance on the analysis and use of routine malaria data collected at the facility level. The module reviews core facility indicators and analysis, provides suggestions for questions on data quality as well as considerations and limitations for using the data and analysis.
Immunization coverage is the fraction of a certain target population that is vaccinated with a defined number of doses for a certain antigen or vaccine, expressed as a percentage. Coverage is the most direct measure of program performance.
The exercises in this booklet are part of a package of materials used to develop skills in using routine facility data for by HIV programme managers at national and sub-national unit (SNU) level.
The exercises in this guide are aimed to help leaners on the collation, processing, analysis and interpretation of DHIS2 data and triangulation with other data sources.
The overall goal of this guidance document is to extend existing guidance in the 2015 WHO consolidated HIV strategic information guidelines familiarize HIV and HMIS programme managers with the tremendous potential of using standard dashboards to routinely analyse and use programme data to more effectively monitor and manage HIV programs.
