As countries continue to invest in and make strides toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and universal health coverage (UHC), strong routine health information systems (RHIS) are fundamental to the effort. Well-functioning RHIS provide a wealth of data on a country’s health system that can be harnessed to identify gaps and support evidence-based decision making. Yet, while many low-to-middle income (LMIC) countries have established a national RHIS structure, there are existing challenges relating to availability, analysis, and use of the data that need to be solved.

Please join us for an interactive discussion on current innovative approaches being used in LMICs to strengthen RHIS with the greater intention of improving the quality and equity of national health service delivery. Drawing on their respective experiences, panelists will share how they have overcome existing barriers and discuss:

  • Creating accountability in the community
  • Building an information culture leading to better data use, using human-centered design (HCD) as an approach
  • Providing innovative electronic tools for data management and use at the facility level that can connect with data management platforms for the management and monitoring of progress towards UHC (DHIS2, openIMIS, etc.)
  • The role of eHealth architectures and interoperability in HIS
  • The Data Use Partnerships in Ethiopia, Tanzania, and Malawi
